Default Engine stamp placement (VIN and ID)

Hello Factory Correct Restoration, it's been a long time but I am thinking about getting a Corvette again.

Just starting to look around and have some questions about engine stamps. I did the search but did not find what I am looking for.

First, I see some stamps with the VIN on the left, and some with the VIN on the right. Is this a big block vs. small block thing? Does it vary by year? Or is one correct and the other absolutely wrong?

Thank you,

BAD-L88

Welcome back! BB engine stamps had the vin on the right side of the pad where small blocks were on the left side. Good luck on your search.
