Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2011: Could this be a 1909 windshield??

I bought a stack of 5 windshields today at an auction and I'm trying to identify them. I know a picture is worth 1,000 words, but my camera is at the office. One of them is a Rand Mfg brass with identical lower and upper pieces, each measuring 41 1/4 X 12 3/4. The windshield is fastened to the upper part of a 2 piece firewall with a bracket on each end and one in the middle. The brackets attaching the two pieces of firewall together is a flat piece of brass that has a fancier curve shape, not your usual rectangular shape, and does not have a "bump out" for the brass trim around the firewall. The brass trim is flush with the edge of the firewall, which i believe the 1909 had. Any help on what year this might be?

A few pictures would be nice, might help in the identification too. Besides we love to see goodies. :-)

There was no particular 1909 Windshield. Rands made a dozen or more variations. Yours sounds appropriate for a 1909 - 12. For any brand of car, not just a Model T.

Also the top was not standard in 1909 and the available tops varied considerably. The windshield height would be sized to match the top ideally.
