Two ID plates located on F-1 engine F-2009. Although heavily weathered, some of the lettering is (barely) legible.

Stamped directly on the thrust chamber, above the top ID plate, appears "08I02", which presumably is "208102", the thrust chamber's part number (see the top ID plate, below).

Below this is "2326", presumably part of "4062326", the thrust chamber's serial number (see the top ID plate), followed by "D" and "C.h.g.".

The top ID plate reads
