Very early OHV heads

We've seen early OHV heads, identified by the sloping fins, and now Reece seems to have found a very early OHV head. Reece: "I have come across an interesting early cylinder head. If you look carefully at both heads (above) you will notice that the one on the right has conventional sleeve-head nut recesses while the one on the left does not and would have originally have had nuts or dome nuts to hold the head down. It has never been drilled for recesses. Both heads do not have dates stamped. I thought it must be a very early head."
