    I knew Steyr became an error prone disaster but didn't realize they had issues at this level. I suppose they all became more error prone as the war dragged on and production pressure increased. It looks like only 1 upside down numeral though on the rear band.

Podest nicht die Paten der Soldaten doner die da Sterben sollen, soll man geben was sie wollen, sahs sie Herzen, sahs sie Küssen, den sie wissen nicht wann sie sterben müssen"

    If you've spent any time stamping numbers, it is pretty easy to do! Pressure or not....

    Shop I used to work at I would spend 10-12 hours a day machining die details. Every detail got stamped with the die number, part number, revision, material, heat treat spec, and any special notes. That often added up to 20-30 characters. In the course of the day you might machine any number of details and hammer a LOT of stamps. I seriously doubt anyone did NOT screw up at least one stamp a day. Some of those guys screwed up several.... I know I averaged at LEAST one or two a day.

    Frankly.... I am surprised we don't see if more

    In the first example they didn't bother matching the guts, only the body.
