Default Teebird Question

I have a Teebird with flight numbers. The stamp is wiped away and yet there is no remnance of any 12x stamp. No remnants of a plus mold stamp either. The actual "Teebird" stamp on the disc sits about an inch lower than a 12x pfn would. So right about where a regular 12x would sit. But, again, no remnant of the 12x portion of the stamp in the center of the disc! It is also flatter than my 12x pfn, if that helps. Any thoughts on what it is?

If it had a stamp, it would look like this.

Is it CA or CAL tooled? Does it have patent numbers?

I'm going to guess champion Teebird+ but the Plus part was a different color ink which was wiped more successfully than the part you can see. For example, look at the one in this eBay auction:

Thanks, that is what I was thinking. There is no imprint whatsoever from the plus portion of the stamp. But maybe the plus is just superficial ink which makes no indent in the mold?

My first guess would be a TeeBird.

There are "no time" teebirds out there. Not all teebs have the 11/12 designation. It's a more recent run, maybe a few years old? Someone correct me if wrong.

This is probably one of them if the rim isn't slanted like a plus rim or didn't have the plus indication on the front.

Edit: Interesting. Worth anything extra?

Thanks for figuring this out for me.
