Default Ford-script head question

I cleaned up a head to check for condition the other day and realized I was looking at a Ford-script head with a part number. I don't think this is a Ford product, but I hope I'm wrong. Could a few of you fellow "Barners" tell me what I have here and what it might be worth before I spend any money on it? I see no cracks, looks good under a straight edge, and all the threads are good. Thanks in advance.

I have a december 28th 1936 service head.To my untrained eye it is a superior casting than the rouge made production head,it appears thicker and the machine work is cleaner.Its going on the next stock build I do..

I have a NOS Ford script head I bought last year on Ebay and put on my engine. I was the only bidder,guess everyone wants a high compression head. I never thought about the Ford script at the time being later production but if those are the date numbers I may check mine tomorrow bet they wo't be as easy to see now as your picture shows.

Even though Ford didn't continue to produce all of the individual parts (many were farmed out to subcontractors), the model A & B engines were still being assembled at the Rouge as both replacement parts and for industrial engine production. This continued quite a while after the model A went out of production.

A good example was the Gleaner Baldwin NA and NR non PTO combines.

Gentlemen, thank you very much for the education/information on my cylinder head. I was unaware that Ford was still producing these into the late '30s. I am very grateful to have the Ford Barn at my fingertips for information.
