Fuel tank Skid Plate - Factory, Hickey, or?

My 69 Blazer came with this fuel tank skid plate installed. Is it factory, Hickey or some other company's. Fabrication on it doesn't look home made. Anyone know?

I have a factory skid plate, and it doesn't look like that one.

I know. I had a factory one for my 71. This one is heavier and has the skids on the bottom. Searched photos on the web but haven't come across another yet.
Truck was from Wyoming.

Not sure with that rounded edge on one side. As far as makers other than factory or Hickey, there was Desert Dynamics, and others I can't think of now. Yours isn't Desert Dynamics, those had bent angles.
