Try to find a NOS one. The originals are on metallized wet strength beer label stock.
The reproductions are on foil without a paper backing. The PRINTED IN USA at the bottom right should be extremely fine type.

The first is a NOS- notice the slight texture in the foil - like a beer label?

The second is a reproduction - note the differences

The 350/300 is a NOS label to illustrate how fine the PRINTED IN USA type should be on the 325 HP label.

Think your second photo showing a reproduction,is a copy of an earlier production design that Chevrolet used,that didn't originally have PRINTED IN USA on back then.

What James was talking about with finding NOS is right on if you can find them. The a/m ones are a joke. Mine are already pealing around the edges. They are just poor quality in general from what I've found.
I attached an older pic and you can see it starting even three years ago. Mine have the Printed in USA on the 396 label.
