When did Dupont Start putting the Trussrod Covers on the Headstocks?

When did Dupont Start putting the Trussrod Covers on the Headstocks? I have noticed that some models have them and others don't. Does anyone know when the covers started to appear on the headstocks? Thank you.

    Also, are the covers on all models or on just a certain style? Thanks again.

    I'm guessing that the headstock trussrod cover is on all F hole style guitars (DM). My MD-100 neck adjusts from inside the guitar body. It wouldn't surprise me if counterfeit Duponts have a truss rod cover on the headstock.

    Yes, the "F hole theory" makes sense. Do all of the Chorus models from other makers include the truss rod adjustment on the headstock? Thanks again.

    My Altamira F has a truss rod cover on the headstock . Very nondescript little piece of wood, kind of hard to notice

    I'd imagine his Nomad range would have a headstock end truss rod cover but I could be wrong.

    Ignore that, on closer inspection I believe I'm talking nonsense or keich as we might say in Scotland.
