Are seen with and without added metal strip like the one in my linked topic above.

Is yours not signed in script somewhere round the base?

Anne, thank you very much for that information. I can find no signature but from what the link you provided said, later versions were not signed. I Love this board! The knowledge is immense. Thank you!
