Here are pictures of various Colt grip medallions. Notice how the horse's head in relation to the lettering has changed over time!

Basically, the head is near the C on later (post-war) medallions and near the L on early (pre-war) ones. Aside from the 150th anniversary "half-horsed" version and any Custom Shop specials, I would be concerned about the originality of other variations. The early deep-dished with the colt facing forward on both is also a special case. JMO :)
