Rat Rod Unique Numbering

Each copy of Rat Rod Magazine has it's own unique identification number printed on it's cover. (Issues 6 to 19 contain the number on the back cover, in the map box - and issues 20 and newer have the number printed right on the front cover on the bottom) This number tells you what issue it is and when it was printed, and occasionally we like to hide "golden ticket" winners in the mix. Find two matching copies of #23 - one with "rat" and one with "rod" stamped after the unique number and shoot us a photo of the pair. Good luck!
