Is this gauge aftermarket or original? Just found it.

Just wondering because it looks old, the white numbers and S letter are not perfect, but the 2 screws make me crazy have never seen that on the R Model. I only have this pic.

This is the way the oil pressure gauge looked when I bought 5S275 in 1988. Some years later a shop
in Riverside, CA, United Speedometers, painted the needle  with the correct paint. They also replaced the bezel.
Can you show pictures of the sides and back of the instrument.

   The one I have is a MoMa "relabel" and the CS logo looks VERY similar in that it is not "crisp". Original CS logos were very nice , unlike the one in your picture and the one on my dash.
