I don't think so. My horn is marked WD in black paint and has screw with raised cheese heads. First picture on this blog post:

If you want to be fussy the correct horn has a piece missing from the rear shape in the casting. I don't think it's any different from the other Ariels of the period (before and just after WW2). I don't know when the plain shape came in. Nev

Don't worry Luis, many of us think like that.

A couple of days ago I spent 3 hours writing a blog post on how to fill a grease gun!
