  2. The tag with the serial number is usually located over the front door. Supplementary tags can also sometimes be found in the center of the backbar. In a lot of cases though, the tags have been removed, either when the diner sits vacant for a while, as it’s an easy part to pop off, or when the place changes hands and the owner wants part of the diner to remember it by.
