In fact I once heard that they started using serial numbers not for their own use per say but so schools and institutions could keep track of instruments in inventory.
I also get people asking what factory a drum might have shipped from or the exact month a drum was made or even the production numbers etc.
In the 60's Insurance companies made it mandatory that serial numbers be put on items so they can be documented.
Unfortunately drum companies never really prescribed to any code of documenting a drum based on that serial number.
