1956 Wagemaker Wolverine ID Numbers

Hello,
I have recently purchased a 1956 Wagemaker Wolverine and have started the restoration process.

I have come across 3 ID numbers; 1- the Stern ID Plate from Wagemaker Model 6_16 2-in the bow under the tow eye block and some paint I found a hand stamped metal strip with the number T6- 51_2 and 3-stamped into the wood on the transom the number A3748.

Picture attached.

I am guessing that the 6 16 stands for NO:6 as the called it and the 16 for 16' length which it is.

Can anyone else help decipher the other numbers?

The "T" possible for The Tern which was a type of NO:6?

I have no clue for the transom number.

Also, does anyone have a pair of Wagemaker Wolverine or Wagemaker Plymold chrome emblems for sale?

Or one for loan that I could have a new master sand cast from.

I have a forge close to my house that does sandcasting for jewelry, belt buckles, etc.

Thanks,
Eric
