    Default my Italian queen

    I did an inspection yesterday and got a nice closeup of the queen...never noticed before...it looks like she has a number 3 or maybe a letter E on the next to last segment of her abdomen...anyone ever seen that before?

    The marking paint looks like it's cracking. Sometimes it comes completely off over time.

    I couldn't help but think it kinda looks like a "tramp stamp".

    Are you sure it's not a crown logo or perhaps a tiara? I mean it is the queen after all.
