Pure speculation - Capacity set by the car owner at something less than the standard, not to be changed on re-weigh.  Denoted in my 1944 era by a star.  Just a guess, but not a WAG.

The boxcar has a 1926 weigh stencil so the photo can't be 1923.

What is the back story on the Arbitrary stencils used with the weigh data here? I've not seen that before.

A 1923 photo from the Northwest Museum of Arts & Culture:

Only a fair quality photo.
