Langst-Kierst commemorative boulder

Thanks for the photo and the insightful commentary, Christopher!
What makes this Use even more curious is that appears to be a revised version. Heimatkreis Lank has a pdf from 2004. The last page shows a photo of this boulder. The typography is in Lucida Calligraphy, too, but the letterforms are narrower and also a bit smaller, with higher contrast. From this poorly reproduced photo, it is not clear to me whether this original inscription was also made from mounted metal letters, or if a different technique was used. One thing seems evident, though: The error of aligning hanging numerals to the baseline was made twice.
