I haven't used the AD yet but to do it all over I'd probably opt for the B. Do they all come with the stamped numbers and letters?

I don'y know where you ordered them from but I have heard of these rivets before with the paragraph on them. I order all of my rivets from Genuine Aircraft Hardware and have never had this problem. As far as head markings go the "A" will not have any markings, the "B" will have a raised cross and the "AD" will have a dimple, A "D" will have a raised tit and a "DD" will have a raised Double Dash and a "T" will have a recesed circle.

Definitely should have checked with you first, I may bite the rivet and send them back and get some without the "paragraph" Should have checked with you first.

Thanks for the info!
