Abstract: Going back to the pioneering work of R. F. Williams, it has been widely believed that if elementary presentations $ (K_i, f_i), i=1, 2$, satisfy the Williams axioms and fix the branch points, then there is a pointed conjugacy

$\displaystyle \overline r:(\varprojlim (K_1,f_1),\overline {y}_1)\to (\varprojlim (K_2,f_2),\overline {y}_2)$

between the natural shift maps $ \overline {f}_1$ and $ \overline {f}_2$ if and only if the fundamental group homomorphisms $ \pi _1(f_1, y_1)$ and $ \pi _1(f_2, y_2)$ are shift equivalent. The ``only if'' direction is true. We prove that the ``if'' direction goal of this belief is false by exhibiting a family of counterexamples not previously analyzed. Of course, the associated hyperbolic attractors constructed by R. F. Williams cannot be conjugate in these exceptional cases.
