Have you ever seen a mirror with DCA & a little R in a circle right after the A between the numbers?

Any info on this?  Observed on later GM replacement mirrors.

We believe DCA is Donnelly Corporation of America. Donnelly changed names a few times over the years and Donnelly Corp was one of them starting in 1984. The R in a circle is a "Registered" trade mark.

Thanks Ed that makes sense as I always see it on the ones in the "newer" GM boxes.  I just always wondered if the glass had been replaced or something because the boxes were always previously opened!

My 02D Norwood Z/28 has its original D33 remote mirror (including the little drain slot), and it's dated "9 DMI 8" (September, 1968).
FYI, My 12B Norwood X66 (Dec.68) has a 10 DMI 8   D33 mirror
