    Merlin dropouts & serial # location?

    I am looking at a used hardtail mtb frame that claims to be a Merlin. I'm concerned that it might not be a real Merlin so I'm looking here for some help. I searched around the forum but couldn't find what I was looking for.

    It has been painted (why I don't know, but easy enough to strip) so I can't get a good look at the welds. The dropouts have the falcon head image, in a circle about 3/8" diameter, which I have not seen before. So it made me a little suspicious. Also I found the serial # under the BB, but on this forum I found references that said the serial # should be inside the derailer hanger dropout.

    Can anyone provide a close up picture of their Merlin rear dropouts? This is supposedly a 2001 frame. Any other thoughts are appreciated.

    Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

    The head badge is correct and all the serial numbers are done on the drive side of the bottom bracket.
