I was looking through some surplus material I had stashed away out in the barn when I came across this rather unusual Hemingray 21 CD 145 I must have picked years ago - I recall the area that it came from, but I don't recall at the time noticing that this piece has a rather obvious embossing error. Just goes to show that you should always take a second, third, and fourth look at everything you decide to get rid of, or just stash away in a crawl space!

This one, quite obviously, has the number "1" in "No. 21" embossed overtop of a second "2". Apparently the person doing the stamping for this mould just got a little excited with the number 2, and made this one a Hemingray "No. 22", before crudely attempting to fix the error.

Hard to believe that after all these years of documentation, new errors continue to turn up like this!
