A defense cartouche marked sideways

I recently saw a HRA Garand supposedly from the CMP and it has the defense cartouche stamped sideways on the stock.Ever seen or heard of this and is it possible for a real one to have been put on the stock this way?

Yes, I have seen correct and collector grade rifles at the CMP north store with DAS's tilted one way or the other and one was completely sideways with the eagle's head pointing towards the buttstock.

Got one..... It came on a 2.0 mil SA rebuild with a '52 HRA tube on it.

Best,

I have one that appears to be a WWII stock that was sanded down and then the post war stamps applied. Has a serifed P stamped over the old one and the eagle's head is pointed towards the muzzle.
