2484 was destroyed in 1966. Two replicas were subsequently constructed, one in 2003 and the other in 2015.

If you email me a photo of the stamping in question (rstainer@radcothouse.co.uk) I'll comment on the font.

Thanks

It is my belief that the black car that was at Fisken's a couple of years ago is the same car being offered in Monaco today. It was constructed from thin air, based on the absence of any recent ownership records in the registry and a strong hope none would be forthcoming. But the real owner of the car contacted us in 2001 and explained how the car was destroyed on a causeway in Florida on New Year's Eve back in 1966. He had owned it for just a week and had not yet insured it. All he had left was the legal paperwork documenting his ownership, which he sold. The buyer constructed a Cobra using an original 1964 chassis from a car that was converted into a Daytona Coupe. Hence he built a new 2484 from an original chassis as well as the car's original paperwork, plus a number of original parts. That's similar to many of the damaged cars that exist today, and it's a far cry from building a car with no legal claim to a VIN nor any original parts. Today, 2484 is blue and remains in California, not Monaco.
