Please take a look at: http://milan.kovac.cc/atari/chipmunk/
!!! and please note that there is no functionality so do NOT bother to type data !!!
I will add tomorrow PHP code for database but before I do that, I want to consult with you: should I add some more fields or this is enough?

If so we'd need to add the highest serial number of each type together.

Yes. The files are not well sorted so you can find Falcon stuff among Jaguar and ST and so on... Too bad it's just a random dump, so many things are missing but still valuable, I've been able to construct the whole Falcon PCB revision history from that.

these are motherboard (PCB) serial numbers or serial numbers on external case.
Can you explain why Falcon serial number on exterior case and serial number of motherboard are always different?
Y4 - factory code
36 - 1993 year, 6 month (June)
than 5th digit suppose to be "2" as control code but other are possible: 0 - pilot production, 1 - not used, 3 - rework for fcc! In reallife 5th digit is always "0"
6 digits should be Version (NTSC, PAL I, PAL II and Peritel (what Peritel anyway...?)) but in reallife is always "2"
