    I can't remember. I know I called headquarters and they told me which one to use. If i remember correctly I think it's the top

    Top numbers are used for registration. Just registered a small a couple weeks ago.

    This post made me wonder: Is registration required to validate your warranty?

    Thanks

    The number just looks like a manufacturing date so I'd expect them to be similar but not necessarily the same. My dome is 3411 which I imagine is the 34th week of 2011. Too late to check the base as it's all black now.

    That number might be a good way to check the age of a used egg too. I'm curious if anyone has a "registration" number that doesn't follow the WWYY format.

    Interesting  - got my Large BGE from an authorized dealer 9 months ago.  The never said anything about having to register the Egg.  Wonder if it is too late?
