    Ok, but both are unserialized, does it mean that one was made earlier and the other later; closer to the sku ones?

    the square tabs are the first and second generation tabs, I believe some dope in manufacturing put them with too much force on the grinder and rolled the sharp tab over.by the time they got to the IH frames the tabs were almost completely rounded off. These frames will never get tight no matter who's rubber you use.

    I noticed that too on the rounded orbitals too. The is always a small amount of play on the nose bridge whatever rubber i used. I just have to live with a little play. Thanks for the infos @xmetalmaniac and @THE X-MAN

    That explains the seemingly universal looseness on the BNIB IH frames.
