In checking a number of pistols on gunbroker, I see several Interarms PPK/S pistols and a S&W PPK/S pistol with no serial number on the slide. So, I conclude that is not unusual.

If it is an Interarms model, after the late 80's they dropped the hand fitted serial numbered slide in favor of a more streamlined manufactured slide that would have looser tolerances so it could be fit on any frame produced. S&W continued the practice to cut down on production costs (as well as cutting other corners...).
