Han's - You are more than welcome!!! Please take additional pics of the head-marks from your collection. Those that I didn't include because I could not tell what they were.

George - Am I seeing things or is there a mark in the middle of all the rings (pic below)?

Thanks guys!

Here are a few more. I'll try to take the same shots from both Camaros (67 LOS 4B unrestored and NOR 5B restored in mid 80's)

Enjoy!
Mike

Here are zooms of the three.
The LOS 12 bolt rear cover are unique and I have never seen them before. That marking is on all 12 bolts. The shoulders are still covered in grease.
The marking sort of looks like a hand in one part?

The traction bar is the letter 'P' but with the center filled in.

The brake regulator bolt is the same for LOS and NOR.

The 'alloy' bolt is 'Supertarium Alloy'
I can't find that on the web. Maybe that's an in-house invented word?

Very cool...I'll add them to the list.

I thought I might have the viper/hand on mine. No dice but I came up with two I haven't seen yet; what looks like a ">" w/dash or a "Z" and a "B&H"...

 Is your 'Z' bolt from the rear end cover? It sure looks close to my semi-Z bolt markings from my rear end cover, doesn't it?  ???

Mike - yup yours and mine are the same. Plus it makes sense...their both 12 bolts from LA. The subtle differences could be a prime example of what John spoke of earlier.

By any chance do you have a shot of the underside? I'll bet yours are serrated also.

Heck, for a minute I thought you had a viper head mark.

...Is the "P" in your first pic a mirror image, or is it a backwards P? I'm asking because I have several P's also...

 Here is another random one removed from the rear (the first time off the car since 67!)
They look close though mine is disconnected. If it was the machining stamping cast that was 'worn' then possibly 100's to 1000's of these could have been produced.
Yours and mine have the same head shape otherwise and look approximately the same size.

Damn! it 's reversed. I took it upside down because it was the only way I could get a focus shot of it and flipped it vertically but forgot horizontal.
Good catch. It's a 'P' though.

Excellent! That's what I was hoping to hear. I have several P's and you are the first to confirm! I'll have an update here in a sec...After that...stick a fork in me...I'm done for the day  ;)

Thanks for all the help Mike!!!
