I was unable to find definitive information relating to a trademark registration number database. However, there is a short video on the page at the following link that may shed some light on federal registration of a trademark.

Should I Register My Trademark?

Although federal registration of a mark is not mandatory, it has several advantages, including notice to the public of the registrant's claim of ownership of the mark, legal presumption of ownership nationwide, and exclusive right to use the mark on or in connection with the goods/services listed in the registration.

This animated video explains the benefits of a federal trademark registration and how to put people on notice that your mark is registered with the USPTO. [run time 7:30]
