Which one of these numbers is my processor's serial number?

That is what my processor looks like. I need the serial number but I'm not sure which one it is...I'm assuming the bottom #?

Sometimes on Intel CPUs the serial number is actually a concatenation of multiple values shown in your picture, but this looks like a mobile CPU and I have no idea how to obtain the serial number on that. Intel has instructions on their website for desktop CPUs.
Who's asking for your CPU's serial number and why? If they need it, perhaps they can tell you how to figure it out from your picture.

Yeah, it's an i5 2450m. I took it out of an old laptop and sold it on ebay. The guy that bought it asked me to include the serial number with it. I'll probably just send it off and let him figure it out himself, I don't see why he can't just read it off when he gets it.

If he knows enough to ask for the serial number perhaps you could ask him where it's located.

Well, he wants me to write the serial number and put it in with the package. By the time he saw what I wrote, the serial number would be sitting right there.
