Ferrari did go to a one bolt hood badge but the fender badges had three studs that were soldered on after firing and before plating. The hood badges are the same overall dimension but vary in detail and construction over the years (never try to pass off a new badge on an old Ferrari). Some of the older badges have become very valuable. I made a steel press die for the hood badge years ago and it is still usable on current models (fits old Dino badges as well). The change to single stud is really a function of limited access to the back of the badge on the newer cars and the advent of double back tape which allows for the single stud.
