Default Original model A tattersfield intake? Pics?

I bought this yesterday and wonder if anyone can tell me if its an old, original intake? I cant find a pic online like this. It definitely isnt a new repro. Those have different lettering and full holes on the mounting surface. I want to run it on a lte 30’s early 40’s style ‘hotrod’ and want to make sure its correct.
Thanks,
Scott

It appears to be an original manifold but also appears to have originally made for a Winfield carb but the top couple of inches have been cut off and a Stromberg flange welded on, commonly done back in the day.

Thanks for the reply Jim. It definitely has not been modified in any way. Was hoping for some other pics of originals. I will keep checking back occasionally

Google is your friend;

A 2 second search came up with the above leads.

RedModelT,
I appreciate you taking the time. But if you read my post above it says I have not found a picture online (and yes, I do know about google) that looks anything like the manifold I bought. That is why I asked the question here. Please share the pic YOU found using your friend google of the intake manifold that looks like mine. Look closely at mine though, as the TATTERSFIELD name is cast in letters that are different than the modern day tattersfield intakes.
I look forward to the pics ��
Scott

Why not place this question on HAMB and see if you can get any more info. The guys there are more into the speed side of bangers.

Hi Red,
Thats true and I put it on the hamb but it seems like that forum doesnt have nearly as many guys interested in the actual old stuff as they used to. It got no replies over there. At least you guys are good enough to respond and because of that, I apologize if I came off a bit short in my last reply. You are a valuable contributor here, so sorry about how I worded my reply.
Also, in order to close the loop on my question I thought I would provide an update. I emailed Tony Baron who is, I believe, a son of one of the guys who started the Thickstun-Baron-Tattersfield company. He says he has originals and the old patterns and that they all always used the actual company logo, not just letters set in the mold as seen on my intake. He wondered if it could be an early (70’s-80’s) reproduction. I wondered if it was maybe some unauthorized reproduction. Either way, it sounds like its not original. So bummer for me.
Thanks,
Scott

Your lettering is different than the lettering on my re-pop manifold. Mine has a ridge all the way around the lettering. I tried posting a picture but I can't seem to do it.
