Left Handed Dalehead?

Hi all, would you look at these two pictures and advise if this might be an old left handed dalehead? With all the printing in "non standard" order, would you think it may be rare? I am a "rightie" and I would just be buying it to collect it... It also looks to have a patent stamp behind the PING so I don't know how valuable..

Mine is the same lefty Dalehead,
There were three cavity letterings apparently.
They are not worth as much as the right handed one, although there were less made,
There is some good info in the Detetco booklet,

They actually made the leftydale for many years after changing the RH version design in about 1973. Demand must not have called for a new mold until the late 70’s.

Thanks for the info Lumpy. Do you think the left is worth anything? Maybe 50.00?

Cheers Lump, glad to have you back on this board,
No one here knows more about the older PING's than you mate!!

The Detetco booklet says, probably the most common cavity inscription for the left handed Dalehead is,

NO. D207227 OTHERS PEND.
PHOENIX, ARIZONA
KARSTEN 85029 MFG. CORP

But other versions may read,

PHOENIX, ARIZONA

85029

or

NO. D207227 OTHERS PEND,
PHOENIX, ARIZONA
85029

or

U.S. PAT. NO. D207227
KARSTEN MFG. CORP.
PHOENIX, ARIZ.
