Odd vin stamp

Are stamps like this common? Looks like a double hit or a "bounce" ?? Or possibly wrong size characters to start with?
I've looked at hundreds of stamps over the years and most of the restamps are usually laughable and easily recognized. (My favorite was T0230IF on 942 block) This one looks to have good (correct) broach marks and is a 2 bolt. I'm trying to settle a friendly disagreement that not all stamps are perfect, and blunders like this did happen without need of correcting.
