USGI castle nut pliers

Can some body please post a picture of a set of real USGI castle pliers, I want to know if the ones I found are real. I want to sell them in the PX but I dont want to advertise them as real if they are not.
thank you.

Here's a few pictures of the CN pliers I found cleaning up...



My brother must have bought these, I have another set that look the same but they have a diffirent rivet and the plastic dip on the handle is thicker.
They are the same thickness metal and the shape is the same. like I said I'm thinking about listing these in the PX and do not want to misrepresent them.
thanks for any help.

Casey

This is what I have. Feels like the unopened one has the plastic cover on the handles as well

Does the pivot pin on yours look like the one on I posted, on both sides?
you only took pics of one side I think. the plastic dip on the handles of mine look like a Monday or Friday job.
thank you.
