Was it common practice to grind the rough area by the oil filter prior to stamping the vin?

Here is the original pic, if you need a better shot let me know (keep in mind the block is still in the car)
- I read some where that if they mis-stamped a block at the factory they ground it off and re-stamped it - if this is the case, is there any way to possibly see the previous VIN?

I think it's original. Looks like the casting might have had some flash that was removed.
Do you have a pic of the engine pad?
