It’s not because of a soft initial stamp. That is from a very light touch

I agree, its much too light to a test stamp or something like that.


To me it is a classic double tap from when the mark is punched, the tool just bounces slightly onto the surface right after the hard punch and makes that very light mark in my opinion. I mark keys all the time with a punch set I have, and something it skips and leaves a very light doublt mark just like we are seeing on these Juncker badges.

It is a classic bounce from stamping as Tom described. I have stamped stuff with hand stamps and it is quite common. Great badge!
