I have a 67 Triumph with no title so had a local policeman here hoping he would sign a RMV form attesting to the VIN.
Well, he refused saying the number style varied in parts of the stamping. I tried to convince him with no luck that that is they way they are.
It's quite rusted and worn but can be seen.
How does this look to forum members who have seen others?

Just try a different inspector. The number looks fine to me, and even if it isn't, having the inspection makes it good! Here we drive an hour extra to find friendly officials. (OH)

The more scattered stampings were done on Friday mornings .
In those days workers were paid cash on Thursday lunch times so Thursday evening was the big drinking night.
Friday mornings were hung over!
In those days car manufacturers in Coventry (Meriden is just outside Coventry) had a special warranty category for "Friday morning car" as on Friday morning anything could happen on the assembly line---and frequently did!
Oh BTW--it wasn't Nigel, Alistair and Angus---it was Bill, Fred and Bert.

Seems like the alignment of the frame numbers on vintage Triumphs varies greatly, perhaps due to how many pints were consumed at lunch that day by Nigel, Alistair, Angus, or any of the other guys on the frame-stamping line.

I checked mine but is very difficult to take a good photo due to I put plenty of PU and clear when I painted the frame.
