question about the serial number...550 CMWH 89 006...What does the "M" stand for?

What is the wheel size? If 650c it could be the indicator of this vs. the standard road frame 'K' (the first letter being the fork size), before the switch to the first letter to designate the frame type and the second to indicate the company.

700c, yea I had not thought of wheel size. The waterford site was somewhat helpful but didn't specifically address "M", or other letters preceding the waterford plant "W" other than the fork length letter.

Sounds like a letter to Mr. Schwinn (at Waterford) is in order. He's been pretty responsive in the past to my queries.
Be sure to share any answer you get.

He replied - he said info was sketchy but he thought it indicated the type of paramount sold at that time, standard or the new OS.
