Heat-stamped 681s in 1950?

I have two sets that included 681 turbines with 12-wheeled 2671 tenders: 2167WS and 2173WS. They were both catalogued in 1950 and 1951. I have the 1950 set box for 2167WS and I am not sure about the other set.

In both cases, the locos look to have heat-stamped numbers. They are clear and white.

The McComas and Tuohy book indicates that the 681s in 1950 and 1951 had rubber-stamped numbers like earlier turbines. The Greenberg's guide I have indicates the 681s came both ways in 1950 and 1951.

Does anyone know what is correct?
