Haven't seen one

I've had a J-DL with the fox, etc., for several years, so I kind of like to look at others I see at gunshows, etc. I've never seen a double-stamped one. You're probably correct that the first stamping was too light, so someone tried to correct it and it got through quality control (if there was any). It probably makes your gun unique in a sense, but (in my opinion) its overall condition will be much more important in determining its value than the faulty stamping. I've found that poorly stamped and lightly stamped letters aren't uncommon on various Stevens and Savage guns. A collector might look at the double stamping as a negative ("not correct") or a positive ("unique"), but it will never influence value like a coin that was misstamped at the mint or a stamp that was printed wrong. Other opinions may vary.
