These turned up recently. I have emails from Chris at Peerless. He says these are the only ones he has ever seen! Notice the 1916 Patent date. 1916? Peerless never had a 1916 patent date for the post key style cuffs! It should read "1915." This was a mistake, done at the factory. No idea on how many could be out there? Check your cuffs closely, maybe you have one? Side note: Today I got another set in with the same stamp. So, we know of 2 cuffs marked like this so far.

I believe this is a 5 based on the straight line across the top.
The bottom of the 5 appears to be somewhat closed at the bottom.
Your close-up also appears to be an over-stamp unless that is just a shadow.
Here is one with 5's & 6's stamped and you can see the difference.

I believe it was a type of "over stamp or double stamping" that occurred. I appreciate the pics for comparison. Still and interesting factory mistake. There has to be more of these out there, before thy noticed it and corrected it?

Here is one where the 5 is almost closed.

Sorry, try this one. Have a hard time finding a good size image.

Yes. The 5 is very close. Wonder if this was maybe after the stamp had been used a bit and wasnt as sharp edged? Progressively,getting worse as time went on? On Imgur.com, for images, i select the "Huge Thumbnail" option to get the first pic size I posted. Hope that helps with future pics.

Here is one a little closer.
Agree on stamp getting worn.
Thanks for the tip on image size.
