New stamping on the left with original on the right. Very close using the correct font and size. The only difference is in the thickness of the letters. Without a known original you will not likely be able to tell them apart in a few years.

MK2 Boyt43 Repro 011.JPG (706974 bytes)
Original Boyt 43 stamping. Note the subtle differences in the two above photos. The new repro stamp is very close to the original. The shape of the 4 is different and the spacing on the Boyt is different as well. On the repro the y in Boyt touches the 3.

Note the difference in the rivet holding the retainer strap in place. The original on the left uses a larger flat rivet while the repro uses a smaller domed rivet.
