Ah yes! I used to keep a collection of found mis-made fasteners. It is amazing how few there really are.

If it's anything like mis-struck coins or stamps, it could be worth over $10,000. Any takers?

Industrial Espionage! Shame on you!

That's unauthorized spy footage from the Slotus Fastener Company, part #00001!!!
I insist you remove that picture immediately!

(We figure we'll break even on the screws and then make a killin' on the special screwdrivers!)

:rofl:

Looks about as useful as a normal Phillips to me.

no picture, but I have found bolts with no threads cut.... maybe they were leftover rivets with hex heads. Class "C" fit.

I have a 7/16" ARP head stud in my collection. All the *other* studs in the pack had threads on both ends; this one only has threads on one end.

I once got a Champion spark plug without threads. Foolishly, I took it back to the parts store and swapped it for one made properly...
