While shopping for decals for my WD-45 I noticed that they make ones that have "Allis-Chalmers" in blue lettering with a long A and S. Mine is a midyear '53 and I have a picture of my grandfather sitting on it shortly after his father brought it home and it has dark (he said it was black, pic is B/W) lettering with the A and S even with the rest of the lettering.

Also I noticed that some places (YT for example) have a short fat WD-45 decal in their kit. Rather than the tall skinny one both in my picture and on most other pictures out there.

Is there some reason that I am not aware of as to why company's would bother making what appears to me an obviously wrong product like this or am I missing something?

I wonder if early WD's had the blue/long A & S lettering as my '47 C did, but I am at a loss as to why they would carry that clear over to WD-45's

Some of the older WC tractors used the blue letters, and may be included because it's cheaper than stocking for each individual model. What bugs me is paying $75 for a set from an AGCO dealer and the only 'Allis-Chalmers' in the set was wrong- simple black letters with no border. Had much better results dealing with Jorde on my next one.

And I am not trying to endorse anyones decals or anything, I haven't even got them yet. Just trying to see if they were making obviously wrong ones or if there was a reason to it I didn't know about.

Kind of like making replacement Ford ovals for cars green instead of blue...
