I have a couple photos of early 12 bolts (69 - late 68 for 69MY) that were not gang stamped.  As Chick mentioned post a photo or you can email me and I can post it.

I agree with Darrell but will wait to see what our experts conclude. Thanks Darrell for assisting Rich.

I have seen these individually stamped rear ends as I have one myself. Jerry initially could not verify it to be original, but as more time passed and more were observed like mine in the same time frame, he did acknowledge my rear to be original. I knew the rear to be original since I knew the original owner and his family and the full history of the car (a ton of docs and history from new), and I was not selling the car, so while concerning initially, I just knew with more time and more discovery the truth would come out. I have now seen many examples from researching mine, I would assume the same will hold true for you as I think yours appears original imo.  Just be patient and let the research catch up.  :)

Is this rear end associated with a particular car or is it loose?

Bare housing or complete?

If complete, how do the ring and pinion dates and the posi date compare to the housing assembly date?

OK what is the assembly date of the Posi?

I would just roll with it and not worry about it.

I assume no documentation for the car?  Still have the original engine and transmission?
