Colt Early Python NOS Target Grips : Pistol Grips at

I was interested in this Gun Broker auction for "New-Old-Stock" Python Type II Stocks and became curious about the medallions. When I compared the Gun Broker Auction photos against photos of the Colt medallions in my Python Type II stocks (and other years), there appears to be some differences. I believe, but have no way to prove it, that the medallions may have been changed, likely from silver to gold.

Curious if others have Python Type II Stocks with medallion characteristics similar to the Gun Broker Auction medallions.

First are some photos of my known original Python Medallions from '60, '77, and '80.

Notice the differences in the "punch" shadowing and the letters.
