    Quick. How could I know for sure whether an SVT head is vintage or reissue?

    The vintage reissues say "VR" on them.

    Also, VR has the recessed spring loaded handles while the vintage has the strap handles.

    Also a reissue would use the "Script Logo" as opposed to the "Block Letter" logo. The OLD heads had none at all.

    Different sizes too, think the original is deeper.
