Every one of these that I have seen is of this type (depressed dial center, not a true DS).

Jon - that's right, we're referring to the same thing ("depressed center" = a faux DS). Some of the Elgin-Paillards I have listed in the database are reported to be DS, but I have not yet seen one that is not of the faux DS/depressed center type.
