Embossed rear sght?

I'm sure someone has seen these before, but I haven't. I had a few of these embossed rear sights come in the sarco kits last go around. They are not engraved as I am use to seeing. I am wanting to know if those with greater knowledge can identify them to a country of origin, year span, model etc.

Question

I always thought they were Imbel. Could be wrong though. Regardless, I like them better than the engraved versions, more character.

So basically end of the line casting production vs machining and engraving. Did FN do this at the end of production as well?
