Hopefully that post will not be deleted....

I have a nice brown Speedmaster and I wonder if there is any meaning for the marks that are on two of the lugs:

[/IMG]

They look like an old "4" or an old "7" depending from what angle you look at them- only on both lower lugs and vice versa to the other lug...

[/IMG]

[/IMG]

[/IMG]

And yes, for a teaser....

[/IMG]

Wonder if that is just coincidence or if someone knows where these marks come from...

Thank you!!

Michael
