The "reconditioned" 18-35mm Nikkor I picked up from Cameta Camera on eBay does have the tick marks both before and after the serial #. Cameta seems to deal almost exclusively in reconditioned/refurbished Nikon (at least the lenses).

I recently purchased a refurbished Nikon Coolpix 7900 digital camera and was told by the seller that sometimes refurbished is only an item sent back to the manufacturer for inspection when a camera store or seller goes out of business. Some re-sellers will but the unsold/new inventory and need to go through this process. I'm sure there are indeed retooled cameras classified as refurbished but my 7900 looks and performs like new.
