Different slope textures

Are both of these slope designs genuine?

I am reasonably certain that this is just a mold change at some point, but it doesn't hurt to ask. I also have two textured types in dark blue, and one smooth type in sand blue.

It looks like it could be either #3049 or #3049c. Part #3049 currently exists in Sand Blue in at least three sets. As for the change in smooth and rough texture you may wish to read this answer by Joubarc.

That's what I thought, when the Bricklink name referred to the the, 'inside stud holder,' I hadn't connected it to the tiny notches inside the brick, I was looking for a tube of some kind. – Windfire Nov 13 '13 at 19:23
