There are many 188 repunches with 1, 2, 3, or all 4 repunched with nice offsets. The second 8 is always doubled because it came off the matrix.. There is a small premium for those with other digits R/P'd ... the best being the middle 8 corrected lower left with the bead punch, probably to stop a D/C.
