I'm seeing conflicting information from multiple websites and online parts stores regarding the correct "Charger" emblem for a 1970 Charger R/T and I would like to know the correct one to buy.

I've checked Ebay, R/T Specialties, Classic Industries, etc.. and keep seeing different results.

Some show the same emblem for the grille and tail panel, some show the SE Charger emblem with the red/silver/black logo which is wrong, and some do not show any.

Questions: 
Did Dodge use the same emblem on the tail panel as the front grille for the 1970 Charger R/T ?

If different, what is the correct "Charger" only emblem to use on the tail panel and what is the best place to source them ?

THanks

You have to get the one with the dodge arrow on it and cut that part off. Thatís what I did.

The grill emblem is different. It has long studs on it. The rear one was riveted on.

Could the rear R/T's studs have been spun down/swaged tight to the trim panel as I do not see rivets as I know them? Just asking.
The "Charger+arrow"  has the spun down/swaged studs. I'd like to see a very clear close up of the back side of an original R/T trim panel.

OK, I see it now what you may be saying, "riveted", being a stud that is spun or swaged would be riveted and not a rivet.

---Update---

---> Tail panel emblem
I called R/T specialties and ordered a Non R/T emblem and will cut off the arrow since the Charger script measures the same length (about 4.25")

---> Door panel emblem (Approx same "length" as tail panel emblem and looks very similar)
I have an original door panel emblem from an old door panel that has never been removed and is in Excellent condition with zero pitting, so that will go on driver's side.  For the passenger side, I'll probably have to buy another Non R/T Tail Panel emblem and modify the holes for the pins (should not be an issue).

Thanks for the info !
