Is it supposed to be the oval one?

Did all early Piper models have the Oval data plate?

What year did they go to square?

Dataplate has the engine that came on it when it left the factory. Should have been an A75-8 or -9.

I believe, for J3s anyway, the data plates went rectangular for the '41 models. Clyde Smith, or longwinglover, or other more knowledgeable contributors on this site can verify, or correct me and would know this for sure. Also, I believe, as with my '41 J3, the data plate should carry the original engine configuration as already mentioned above. Mine reads J3F-65, even though it was long, long ago converted to a Continental A-65 and now appears as a stock J3C-65.
