Did the early cylinder heads (1909/10) have the cast dates at the back of the head like later T's?

Good question Bill and I look forward to seeing the replies
on your post. My head (cylinder) has numerous casting numbers / letters and I'm curious what they all mean. The documentation from the Henry Ford on my engine # 33435
refer to it as a "C" head...

My 1914 T had the month and year cast on the very back end of the head, as did my '16 but the '10 has no dates at all; just curious why. It's engine number is 15841, built Feb. 4, 1910.

Bill-
My 1911 head was cast September 2. It has the month and day side 9 2 on either side of the center bolt hole.

Note: No MADE IN USA. That was added in April, 1912.

From the Encyclopedia:

02-14-10 (just after your car) T401C Removed spotting boss from rear end (of head)

Bill, I believe the head for your car should have the two spotting bosses on the left side and no casting date above the script. The boss on the rear of the head remained for years after the change Keith described above.

Do you need one? I've been looking for a while for what I described above.

Forgot to add, the bosses on the left side were removed 12/14/09 according to the record, but I've seen early CY 10's to have them.

Not exactly sure what I'm looking for concerning the two spotting bosses but here's what I have. Clearly no dates near the Ford script or the rear of the head but lots of extra dots!

Bill, That's it!

What's it? Which picture am I looking at for the spotting bosses?

I was referring to the cylinder head being proper for early CY 1910. The bosses I referred to are the raised features on the left side (2) and right side of the rear (1). The (2) on the left side were removed in 1910, but I've found the one on the rear remained.
