Upside down serial number--Weird

Posted by Ernie Brandt on Sunday, 14 November 2010, at 11:07 p.m.

I have just returned for the Tulsa show.

Tons of trapdoors on the floor.

Had a really good visit with Red Daugherty. He's looking not so good this year. I hope he slows down next year.

There were 5, yes 5 Officers Models at the show. Some big auction house had one that will come up for sale soon. Forgot who they were.

Weird part

Picked up a 73 (serial 63518)for parts & was cleaning it tonight to inventory. Low and behold the serial number has an upside down number 1 (one). The last number, an 8 (eight) also appears to be upside down too!!! I got out my trusty magnifying glass and sure enough the 1 is upside down! The way they made the eight leaves me wondering if it's correct of not. I looked at one of the other TD's with an eight in the number & it could be assumed that the number would look the same either way.

I will throw this out there for consideration. I have NEVER had this come up before on any TD's I have seen or owned.

I will Email a pic to anybody who wants to see this.
