Default M1A1 Carbine Recoil Plate

Can anyone tell me if this is an original M1A1 recoil plate? I purchased it from an online source as NOS but I'm suspicious since the holes appear to have drilled in it after it was parkerized. It came covered in cosmoline but that doesn't prove anything. Does anyone have a picture of a known original to compare it to? Or can tell me if this one looks real vs. fake/repro?

Northridge international. Iíve been told that this company may be affiliated with the infamous George but I wasnít aware of that at the time...

Not sure they are affiliated with George, but I no longer trust them or buy from them after seeing the batch of "USGI" flip sights that they are selling now.

Yeah I saw that as well, those are the same fakes being sold on eBay. I thought Iíd take a chance with the recoil plate. It looks good compared to the ones Iíve seen on repro stocks. I was just hoping someone knew if the holes and countersink should be in the white while the rest is parkerized.

A simple phone call to Northridge might clear it up...I am sure they don't want to be associated with being in cahoots with George
