I took this picture of an August 1926 built touring car I am restoring. The left edge of the masking tape is at the edge of the first digit. As you can see, the number starts about 3 inches ahead of the front running board bracket on the passenger size. I was surprised at the size of the numbers. They are about 5/16 inch tall. I doubt that anyone would ever notice if you used 1/4 inch metal stamps. Note that the numbers are not in an exact straight line, and there are no stars or other stamps besides the motor number.
