Pile not even close. Disappointed! Wait, cool old car! Can haul grandkids and their friends. Fun factor played int...

And I thought to myself yesterday.. I bet that stamp would really work good on a penny. Thanks Gary! Another million dollar idea smashed on the rocks!
All in fun! Rumor has it that if you go to your local south eastern mn soda swap meet they are free!

Re: Ford script stamp. T era?

Thanks Duey! I'm sure you can appreciate the "it wasn't free" comment! I'm hoping Dan or someone can bird dog out the original purpose. Dad got it in Florida this winter.

Re: Ford script stamp. T era?

My first thoughts also Dan. But it's very small. The hole on the brass plate is only 1/4" with a screw taper.

Thanks for the replies! I'm hoping someone will come up with the part number.
Thanks again !

Ford script stamp. T era?

Thanks to a father that collects everything, I became the caretaker of this piece. It wasn't free if you know my Dad!
Any information from you folks would be appreciated!
