R5 with an odd scale

The Remington Corporation and the knives that they built have influenced the U.S. cutlery industry more than nearly any other manufacturer. From the time America was settled, to the end of WWI, American knife companies struggled to compete with Britain and German imports, but events that occurred during and after the First World War led to a great change in this phenomenon. Unprecedented opportunities arose, and Remington stepped up to seize the moment. In the process, they created some of today's most prized collectables. In an ironic twist, the next World War played the greatest role in ending the company’s domination of the industry.

This R5 is has a hump in the front scale. Any ideas as why? I figure its where the mold injection was located?
Thanks

That doesn't speak highly of the QC department wherever that knife was made...

Absolutely, that one should have never been sent out looking like that.

Possibly something sold from the Camillus bankruptcy auction. ::shrug::
