Default M1 sn re-stamp

I received an M1A1 br with a hand re-stamp of the sn.
Its a 149K Inland and I guess when the flip sight was removed
and the newer rear sight was put on the sn was re-stamped
so it could be seen. any one else have re-stamp like it?

It "should have been" re-stamped in front of the rear sight. See TM9-1276. But with wars on and all you know who knows.

"It was my first day". Probably nobody really cared if one was stamped improperly.

Kind of a shame they had to do it at all, but I turned my own '43 Inland with the 're-stamp' into what it probably looked like after re-build.

That is a nice looking re-build Chris_B ! If I could find a real
paratrooper stock....... I'd re-build mine, a little shorter!
Is that an SA SHM ?

Looks like a foreign font to me. Concur the stamp should have been made forward of the rear sight near the bolt.
