The build date is very difficult to see. I don't think that anyone can make a decision based on that picture. Certainly not a "buying" decision. With three digits of the VIN missing, it makes it even more difficult. I imagine that's why your not getting a reply.

---Just me but I'm not sure I like the crooked E. The gang holder wouldn't accept that as you set the pieces with an allen at the end so it theoretically should be square. I guess there is a chance that the E was miscast at an angle I suppose. Tim is correct on his summation though....Bill S

I will have to take better pictures when I get the car home. I think the number 2 will be the tell tale it is much different then most 2s, after the top bend it goes slightly straight before turning again. I have only seen it on later stamps

Please hold off on a purchase until you can get better pictures. Too many guys get bad news after the fact and it ruins their day.
