one(of the three)of mine has a serial number that looks like it was written by a drunken spider under the bottom bracket.
The serial numbers were done by hand with one of these.

But our both numbers (11339 and mine 11780) seem pretty close - maybe they were made within the same week? Who knows
The "factory" in San Luis Obispo was an industrial unit with a couple of, lets say, characters
welding the frames. Picture the guys at Duck Commander on A&E's Duck Dynasty, only instead of decoy makers, they were aluminum welders. Things were rather lax there, starting at the top on down (Rob was reoccupied with all things helicopter, RC on up). It would have been a few months between the two frames, at least.
