Finally got mine. For me, the hardest part of the whole 'bar' process was the final few weeks after submitting the oath and $100 until getting my number.
 
Here's a general interest question - who had registration number one?

Altho' this appears to be a valid answer - Madison being Secretary of State in 1802 and being responsible for the creation of the PTO - it is WRONG. I spent many hours trying to confirm this and found....  
"Until 1897, anyone could practice before the Patent Office who had not been disbarred and forbidden to do so by the Patent Office. It was not unusual for patent solicitors to begin practice at the age of 16 to 18. The only requirement was to find a trusting client. For years, the Patent Office had wanted to control who practiced before the office. Commissioner Butterworth issued an order on August 6, 1897, requiring registration of patent practitioners. The first registrations occurred on August 3, 1897, three days before the notice was actually issued. The first registrations were under a grandfather clause. One could be qualified for registration by having prosecuted a patent application before the Patent Office within the past five years.
Registration number 1 was assigned to Gales Pritchard Moore (1873-1939) of Washington, D.C. Registration number 2 was assigned to Charles W. Gardner of Newaygo, Michigan."
Now, who had registration number thr.....

The oldest registered practitioner is apparently C. Yardley Chittick, Reg. No. 13,782.
