Those look like 64 front inspection plates.
Had it backwards, those inspection plates are before they changed 3/64. Crest and smaller turn signals look like 62 or early 63.

I had the same issue. I re-bled and re-adjusted the brakes and it fixed the problem. I did buy a new return spring but didn't need it after all.
