I passed on a rare pump plate today because I thought it was a fake due to the different radius of the "r" than what known originals look like for the green diesel and normal gasoline pump plates.

But now researching on this site, all examples of this red letter diesel Sinclair pump plate posted here have this different radius "r"

I've posted a known original green letter diesel plate and the red letter diesel plate to compare. At issue is the small "r" in "Sinclair"

Can anyone verify if the red letter diesel version is supposed to have this different "r" that peaks higher and has a different inner curve radius?

Looks good to me. Plus it has the other characteristic that those plates have. Here is my original.
