    One to ponder??

    In my attempt to get as good as some of you on spotting a bogus number, please take a look at this on fleabay;

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/1940-...#ht_500wt_1182

    isn't the 6's supposed to have a vertical leg?

    There’s more going on than just the number 6, later style replacement cases stamped by Dealer or? Pretty common practice. No way to try & sell a bike with only 3 pictures.

    Yeah, that number's as queer as a $3 bill. All the numbers are wrong. Look here (Chris Haynes' page):

    Beside the fact that it is stamped into a case that did not exist in '40!

    Okay, but..... since the stamp pad does not "look" machined off or overly screwed with, could this case be a replacement case that was stamped after the fact?
