I was not sure if a batter could balk so I went to the rule book

By rule, a batter can not cause a pitcher to balk. A balk is the result of an illegal action by the pitcher while any base is occupied. If the batter leaves the batter's box with both feet during the pitch and the pitcher delivers the pitch, two strikes are called on the batter.

So get back in the box, 3 balls two strikes. Swing, miss, or walk

More I look at it...
It almost appears it could have been a .U. stamp they tried to remove (?)

LOL, well you pulled your swing on this one.

It is an Underwood bolt that someone attempted to weld up the marking and stamped the lug.

The problem is when welding it messes with the hardening of the bolt, more specifically the lug may now be compromised. If the lug was annealed to stamp it may be too soft. The welding area heat creeped to the back of the lug where it locks up in the receiver.
Think of what the damage to the receiver would be when the bolt breaks.

Next we have what must be the Holy Grail submitted by a member.
We usually try not to post current auctions.

https://www.ebay.com/itm/284702999787?hash=item42499f04eb:g:5hgAAOSw9PBiL8J8

it was 1700 dollars yesterday, today it is 70% off OBO!

Too many 'Roller' coaster rides must have been dizzy.
I like the up side down RN better or the double stamped doglegs......
So many to pick from, could be a Legend on our Sunday Funnies.

This to go with the proud owner of the type 2 barrel band above
A genuine GI magazine magazine made by the rare and desirable Poontang Mill Consortium which is sometimes known as PMC. 
 I believe they are made in Usa, 中国人

Get em while they are hot.... off the presses...that is!

Diamond'd KR,
I'm wondering where they came up with that idea?
Wish I could measure the thickness, where it's marked.
Think it was ground away to stamp this mark?

See no signs of over stamping, though I suspect manipulating or the grinding thinner mentioned above.
Also see NO hardness punch marks.

Possible it's a Cast Hammer?
Either way someone thinks it's worth over $40+.... With NO returns accepted.
3 bidders, all with many transactions. Current lead bidder with over 2105..... I bet he's on pins and needles as the clock ticks down:14:38, 14:37........

Interesting but pitiful at the same time.

Thx Dan,
