What is the difference between a Colin Goldie Overton Whistle and a Goldie Whistle?

Not much except the marking of the name and the fact that I have developed my instrument making skills over the last 16 years so I expect a natural progression in the small details. I have been making Overton whistles since the early 1990s until August 2009, a year after Bernard Overton's death. All Overton whistles I have made, have either my name engraved inside the end of the whistle or would have had CSG stamped before the Overton on my very early instruments (pre 1998). Since August 2009 I mark my instruments "Goldie". I have not changed the basic look of the instruments and incorporated many details over the years, not always visible to the eye.
