Its been a while since I posted but work has just conspired to get in the way. I'm literally back off the 757 from Newark, NJ with a few goodies from Vintage Trailer Supplies (see next post). But work was so plat out I didn't get it together to order the rivets from Aircraft Spruce in time to get them delivered to my friends in NY before I left. So I had them sent direct to the UK. Ordered on Monday - and they'd arrived by the time I was home today (Thurs) - pretty speedy service.

But the two shorter sizes (AN470AD - 5 - 4  & AN470AD - 5 - 5) have lettering on their heads !

As you can see I've ordered 5/32, Universal Head, Hard Aluminium (AD) in sizes 4, 5, 6 & 8.

The 4 & 5 size have the above lettering on them, while the 6 & 8s have only a very slight 'F' which is almost invisible. 

I was expecting the central dimple but not the  ' O1DC' - It looks too deep to polish off. 

Looks more like it should be on a pair of Levis !      

Have I ordered the wrong ones ?                

Help !
