GT Coin sizes 2''-2 1/4''??

I have a 85 GT world tour and im not sure about the different size GT coin decals they used, Does the seat post or bars use a different size then the head tube? I see them in 2'' and 2 1/4'', S whats the deal on these things??

All my originals are 2 1/4'' and some of my repops are 2 1/4'' but also have some repops that are 2'' so why do they make the 2'' are they the correct size for something?

if the originals are 2.25,then that answered your question..i know i have got repro decals that were the wrong size,just depends on the maker of them.honestly .25 inches is not that noticeable when mounted,go with originals if you have them,or a repro the same size.

The repop ones come in both sizes so i figured they must do that for a reason, i dont have every GT made so i can only compare with what i got but whey make them in different sizes so they must be correct for something??
