Does anyone know what the numbers they stamp on to games mean?

Not sure... I tried comparing a bunch of them once, and IIRC they were typically (always?) the same number. I think someone said a long time ago that Game Boy and other systems used them as sort of a version thing... so if a label had 21 stamped on it, it was a v1, 22 meant v2, etc. But as far as I know, there's not multiple versions of any VB games.

Where can you find those numbers? On the cartridges or on the boxes?

On the labels of the carts, they're mot printed but just stamped in the paper so there's an indentation in the label in the form of numbers. On the right, lower part on my carts.

The faint "1" on V.F. JP could be the edge of the stamping tool that has left an impression.
