I agree, I believed they were rare but now it’s looking like they’re mainly “uncommon” at about less than 1200 made.

I do think they probably used an strange number skipping approach that is harder to figure out than traditional ones because I really doubt International Concepts ordered 1200 of these on a mere whim and believed they could sell.

It’s likely as well that they designated certain clusters to denote the style of game. They most likely started and stopped with each new interaction of Night Moved as they were produced.

My other theory is: what if they actually made ~450 of EACH STYLE of Night Moves. So the metal apron and guides had 450, then the intermediate version with shallow cab had 450 and finally the plastic apron, deep cab had 450.

It is likely we will never know, but I look forward to new developments!
I’m also seriously considering selling or trading my NM, late production model for a very early one with a shallow cab.
I enjoy the look of the early ones much more for some reason. I think the inserts also seem to look different in the earlier ones, but can’t confirm it for certain.

That’s the model # not the serial number, look at the shooter rail, it should have it stamped in it, or any of the boards inside, or under the coin box. They literally stamped NM in about a dozen places

Correct, you are #1051. They stopped including the leading 000’s once they reached the thousands.

Just added my Night moves to the IPSND. I've got a deeper cabinet with the plastic guards. Interestingly there is no 000 preceding the number as on other examples. Also, the serial number is not stamped on bottom of cabinet in usual location. It is only on the play field and power supply. There are 2 dates on play field edge. Jan. 4th 1990 and ESC May 8. Not sure what the ESC May 8 means. Maybe assembly date and the play field was made on Jan. 4th?
