Default Identify big block crankshaft

Can anyone help me identify an older big block Chevy crankshaft with casting #1293 on the front throw?

Thanks,
Rex

most web sites show the casting numbers from the factory as being about 7 digits

I agree...................I've looked at EVERY website I can find related to crankshafts. This is "supposed" to be an original 3.47 inch stroke crank from a 430 inch aluminum Can Am engine.

I'm just trying to confirm.
