Hello! I have a couple of these heads, one from pi064 probably (Harbor Sentry).
The thing is that the pattern looks brown, not dark red, and it's solid stud.
In the inventory it doesn't refer to any mf, any suggestion?
Could that be a mistake in the inventory?
Thanks!

Solid vs other studs is a mess, as they were handled badly in the past. Colours
may well be off too, as printing over other colours depends on the base colour.
If listing as part of a minifig, just note the stud type in your description.

Presumably it is this head:

 
Part No: 3626apb05  Name: Minifigure, Head Beard Vertical Lines with Messy Hair, Moustache Dark Red Pattern - Solid Stud
* 
3626apb05 Minifigure, Head Beard Vertical Lines with Messy Hair, Moustache Dark Red Pattern - Solid Stud
Parts: Minifigure, Head

And this minifigure:

 
Minifig No: pi064  Name: Imperial Soldier - Harbor Sentry
* 
pi064 (Inv) Imperial Soldier - Harbor Sentry
Minifigures: Pirates: Pirates I: Imperial Soldiers

Note the inventory page for that minifigure even states "Early copies of this
minifigure would have had a solid stud head." Minifigures cannot have alternative
parts, and so the solid stud version does not appear in any minifigures.

See the inventory note at the bottom of the inventory:
"Early copies of this minifigure would have had a solid stud head."

(This is a workaround as minifigure inventories cannot have alternate parts.)


And there is also a note on this entry regarding the color:
 
Part No: 3626bpb0025  Name: Minifigure, Head Beard Vertical Lines with Messy Hair, Moustache Dark Red Pattern - Blocked Open Stud
* 
3626bpb0025 Minifigure, Head Beard Vertical Lines with Messy Hair, Moustache Dark Red Pattern - Blocked Open Stud
Parts: Minifigure, Head
"The pattern color on this head varies from brown to dark red as can be seen
in the additional images."
