Default Nexus 7 Serial Number?

So my tablet has recently contracted a backlight bleed, and I'm RMAing the thing to Asus. They have asked for the serial number be clearly printed somewhere, and if it is not also on the device the warranty is void.

I'm confused - there was never a sticker on the device at all, nor is there anything on the box. The only way to find it out on the device is to go into Settings --> About --> Status, but I'm not sure this is correct. Could anyone post the first few characters of their serial, and also inform me if I must have mistakenly peeled off a sticker or something?

mkdir android ; cd android ; repo init -u ; repo sync ; make

I believe you are correct in thinking that is the serial number they are asking for. I found this page which verifies it:

The number should have also been on the box somewhere but may have been called the CSSN. This number should nonetheless by the same as the serial number displayed in the About Tablet section.
