Default Double Stamped Cross Cannons

Has anyone ever seen on a stock where a cartouche might not have been proper struck the first time and then was struck a second time causing a double stamp? I have a picture of what Iím talking about. Iím trying to figure out if this Inland stock is a true WWII stock. TIA

The factories didn't really care how well applied the stamp8ngs were, only that they were present. The only double struck I have seen were fakes.

Actually quite common itís believed to be caused by the stamping die bouncing when struck.

Does it have any markings inside the sling cut-out?

That might be another way to verify.
