Factory "anomalies"... Let's see yours.

The '85 Miyata three Ten I just got has one. I noticed the A on the NDS down tube is upside down! Looks like an "e", had to do a double take. For a second there I thought maybe I'd been miss-spelling/saying it all this time. I assume these decals are applied all at once, not one letter at a time. Makes me wonder how big the batch of down-tube decals was and how many frames got by before it was caught.

...So who else has a factory oddball to share?
