These 100xxx MC serial numbers all "pre-date" the original "chrome nose" first-gen lens serial numbers, and so I think this indicates that Olympus decided to re-order the s/n sequence, and return the "MC" label for the most recent version of this lens.

Thanks to David Earls and Jay Teiger for supplying S/N update info. I was looking for this thread to provide an update on the Oly 24/2.8 s/n list, as I just bought one with the "MC" label and s/n in the 100xxx series, just like the one you posted above.

This extremely versatile zoom lens trades the brighter f/2.8 aperture of its shorter cousins, the 12-40mm f/2.8 and 40-150mm f/2.8, for a constant f/4 design in an easy-to-carry, all-in-one solution spanning a 24-200mm equivalent focal length range, and with built-in optical image stabilization to boot.Sync IS, which delivers unprecedented camera shake compensation performance, is realized by combining the in-lens IS on compatible M.Zuiko PRO lenses with the in-body IS on compatible Olympus interchangeable lens cameras.I do remember the file you're talking about, but most of this stuff has disappeared from online. I found the following in my archive, probably saved from the Olympus mailing list, datestamped June 2000: Focal Aperture S/N Chrome/ Coating Marked MC?
