just thought I'd throw this one out here, seen at Davenport Swap Meet, September 2009, another example of a REALLY bad restamped number. Buyer beware, stay away from numbers that look like this!

Wow. I could do better that using only an etch-a-sketch!

The "W" and the "L" were done with a screwdriver or maybe a chisel. Maybe the artist was a blacksmith. If not, he should have been.
