Default How to identify a coil rebuilt by Skip

I've got my coils all mixed up to where I don't remember which one it is. How do you identify a Skip rebuild?

Normally you will find an etched code on all Skip's rebuilt coils on the underside.
I had the same problem.

On the ones he has rewound/rebuilt for me, they have my initials etched into the bottom, or on the sides of the bottom. Also a lettered date code of the rebuild, and a build number were all etched somewhere on the bottom.

On my Skip coils he puts your initials and his rebuild date code on the "back side" of the coil which mounts up to the mounting bracket. It cannot be seen unless the coil is remove from the mounting bracket. (Coils he has rebuilt for me are the 42-48 coils. Not certain on other years. He does a great job.)
