Sil Plates pattern which is correct?

Hi there,

I ordered a pair from summit OPG CHV4150 said made to original specs back in the day, I liked them because of the rivets on the fisher tag but they don't have the same stamped pattern as my old ones that are original to my car -72 Chevelle Malibu (Oshawa). So which pattern is correct or are they both correct?

OPGI stamped pattern runs from side to side, the other example runs back to front.

Thanks!
Best regards
Jules

Added later, sorry should of figured this out, my mistake thinking OPGI and OPG were the same company, I realize now they are not date correct. I missed the text description after swinging to Summit's website from OPGI's, thought they were the same. I'm a big dumb! dumb!

Did you try to swap sides? How far off are the holes. I agree they are probably wrong for the year, but look nice.

Your just jealous because you can't hear the voices!

First pic shows ribs running side-to-side very faintly to the left of the Fischer emblems.

My '67 El Camino has the ribs running side-to-side like Ed's, and my all-original '68 Malibu run front-to-rear. Must have been when they switched, just like the "new" body style.

When I works, I works hard.
When I sits, I sits loose.
When I thinks, I falls asleep.

Exchanged the 64-67 sil plates for the correct ones 68-72, I'm happy again.
