Default Barrel Band Swivel Question

I was wondering about the font on UI and UN marked swivels. Did they use both serif and non serif font or is one of the fonts a way to spot a reproduction? I've seen examples of both font types on swivels, but haven't found a reference to one specifically used in War Baby! or Riesch. Thanks

I seem to remember that the UI with the serifs was earlier use on Inlands. I have one of those on my 256K Inland with 1-43 Inland barrel. Pretty sure the UI without serifs was later Inland use, but can't remember how much later these started being used. Have to look at my early and late NPM carbines to say any thing about the UN with serifs vs. those with serifs.
