MPP authenticity check

Hey everybody,
I wanted to ask for some expert opinion whether you think this MPP Flash could be real or not. I‘ve been browsing and comparing the big MPP-Threads here for hours and although I can‘t find any obvious red flags, the nameplate looks off to me (I think it doesn‘t fit properly and I‘m not sure about the „R“).

Many thanks in advance!

Real vintage MPP ... just the wrong 2 step shroud for Vader's lightsaber, which can be replaced by a replica made by Roy at wannawanga ... here's my vintage MPP with nameplate ... the R is the same as yours, disregard the tiny scratch :)

Thanks, I asked as I've only seen something like this on the current batch of Roman's replicas (but they have a large b-port)
never hurts to ask! ;) i believe it has to do with the size of the oval shapes, on the radius of the flash tube that makes these imprefections
