I'll let others comment on the stamping, but the broach marks don't look good. I've never seen them quite that heavy before.

The stamping does not match up with other known genuine September examples.

Looks like the block was decked with a belt sander.

Those are non-OEM broach marks.

That looks like it was done by a Greg Long protege.
Is it from Angola,Indiana by chance?

I'll add my vote to not liking the surface or the stamp, both of which appear to have been done in the recent past.

So not trying to piss anyone off but at time when you have to deck your block for whatever reason. You've owned the car forever and try to reproduce the real numbers and tell people that you did reproduce your original numbers, and documented it is it okay? I'm only asking because I know somebody that went thru this and didn't try to scam anyone. He still owns the car for 40 years and explains this to anyone that wants to listen.
