These weld burns were fairly consistent on Slatwire Scan Hooks throughout this store, but most noticeable on this Grid amid baseball gear. The marks were puzzling because all fixtures I am familiar with are welded first, then powdercoated, and welding burns would be covered. These appear to be welded THROUGH the powdercoat finish leaving burns atop. Or maybe they were repaired and acquired as second-hand fixtures. There was no evidence that the finish had peeled to reveal welds beneath.
