I've seen quite a few Orville by Gibson and Orville Semi Acoustics without headstock serial numbers.
Terada sometimes left the headstock serial numbers off.
Terada had a sometimes erratic serial numbering system.
Sometimes the Terada made Semi Acoustics have headstock serial numbers and sometimes not and Terada left the headstock serial numbers off the K Orvilles as well.
The Semi Acoustics serial number is still on the label inside the body.

Is the serial on a sticker inside the body?

For the OBG and Orville Semi Acoustics and OBG Acoustics, Yes the serial is on a sticker inside the body.
Sometimes the serial is not on the back of the headstock.

All OBG's and Orvilles have serial numbers, either on a sticker or ink stamped because the Yamano warranty that came with all new OBG's and Orvilles had the guitars serial number printed on it.
