Jigged bone or stag?

I just traded into this 1971-vintage Colt that was customized by Don Williams. The grips had nothing to do with my decision, but were advertised as Sambar stag. I didn't like them, so I swapped them out. My friend was interested in the grips, so I showed them to him. He didn't like them. This was the first time I had really looked at them. They don't really look like stag to me. Any opinions on whether they're stag or jigged bone, or who might have made them? I figured the 215 written on the back of the grips was the price, but maybe it's a model number. Thanks.

I use Sambar a lot for knife handles and it does indeed look like stag to me from the pictures. The fact that the bark pattern doesn't match is probably an indication that it's real. Perfect matches are rare, especially when trying to match two really large pieces such as it takes for the 1911 scales. The antler pith that shows on the back and ends is another indication. At least, it is antler.

Thanks. Maybe I'll end up with a gun that I like them on.
