I have an early head that I am trying to accurately identify. The "Made in USA" is indented rather than raised and is beneath the very nice and clear Ford script. I am "guessing" that it is from the 1910-11 era. I could not find mention or pictures in Gail Rodda's reference. Thanks, mike

1912 the Made in USA was added, best to read through the changes in the encyclopedia.

Thanks Frank. I have seen many with the Made in USA script raised but in this case it is indented below the actual surface of the head material. It also has some square mold bosses. No question that it is an early head. I am thinking it may be in the 1910 -11 era.

Frank is correct. Please refer to the encyclopedia date of change to the factory drawings.

Does it have any numbers on it?

There were a few variations of the early Made in USA heads. Some were embossed on small areas under the Ford script. Some were of a mix of embossing and stampings. I have never seen one with the entire Made in USA as a stamping but it certainly is 1912 as all the other variations were.

Thanks, yes the entire Made in USA is like a stamping.
