Default Mercury ID Tag on Motor

Where do I look for the Mercury ID tag on my motor? I am trying to find the exact year it was built. I found the block number on the back, but I do not see the silver tag. Would it be hid by the coupler?

It's on the side of the block above the starter on Sterndrive & inboard (block mounted starter), can be a real pita to see depending on the boat.

if it was registered properly even the drive or gimbal serial # will work as long as its the original pieces

The engine and drive did not come together. The boat came originally with a 350 mag and I upgraded to a 502 Mag.
