Default Original lug nuts?

Wanted some opinions about these lug nuts. Are they original SS wheel lug nuts? 1st design or 2nd? The seat looks really small compared to anything else I have seen.

Thanks Scott

That's how small the seats originally were.And if they're 7/16 too,they're definitely the 2nd design.

That small seat probably explains why the lug seats are destroyed on a lot of AO/YA wheels.

Almost 99% always, stupidest designed lug nut EVER, JMO. First dummy with a impact wrench trashed the wheel.
