Does the serial number on this 1908 look legit?

The "5" looks little odd. The whole SN appears to have been 'hand stamped' without proper alignment. I have seen quite a few SAA's that were done that way, but most of the Hammerless semi-autos I have seen usually have excellent numeral alignment. Of course, Ei8ht will have many Hammerless ones for comparison.

Looks original. A fake wouldn't be that applied that bad. Not unusual for the numbers to be stamped out of line and some lighter than others.

Is that an Ordnance acceptance mark on the back of the receiver? Falls right between two GO pistols.
