I am recovering my coupe sun visor. It was attached with two screws on each end and one in the middle. There is a row of holes along the frame top edge. I think it is supposed to be attached thru all these holes and I think there should be a metal strip with matching holes along the top similar to that on the sides.
I think you may be partially correct Ted but I don't quite understand part of your question. I'm second owner of a '27 coupe ( for sale - matching numbers) that I plan to keep original and I've restored a '26 tudor - which is exactly like a coupe from the doors forward. There are, indeed, 2 verticle mounting screws on each # 1 windshield post and there is a "row of holes along the top frame edge" numbering 7 that uses wood screws that fasten this sun visor to the top wood. The screws will be countersunk, oval headed and slotted. They fit into those nickle plated washers with a birm all around. I don't know what they call these washers but they're still available at Home Depot or Lowe's. But its your last sentence that has me stumped. The 'metal strip' is part of the visor metal frame and nothing is detachable.
Ted u mean the strips about 6" long that go on the underneath on the sides, that has tabs that hold them into place?
See this 2010 thread with pictures of my original sunvisor which shows how the sunvisor is attached to the underside of the wooden roof frame overhang. Notice also, how it is sewn onto the frame. Mine is missing the 6" long tabbed pieces under each end, but I assume they either ran out on the assembly line or the poor overworked visor installer was getting behind and decided that they were not all that necessary and he could save a couple of minutes and get caught up before the Ford goons took notice: www.mtfca.com/discus/messages/118802/130288.html.
I thought there might be a metal strip rather than the dress washers George said should be there.
Those "bermed" (raised) washers George is referring to are countersunk washers for the slotted oval headed counter sunk wood screws. The ID hole of the washers have the same angle as the counter sunk screws which allow the screw to seat into it and prevent you from having to countersink the surface into which the screw is screwed.

For a whopping $3.00 you can get the kit for mounting the visor. A trip to the hardware store would cost you more than that with gas and time.
Yep, that kit that John Z. showed us is exactly what you need. Wish I would've known about it when I mounted mine. I drove 30 miles into the heart of Austin, TX where theres an old-time hardware store that carries the correct screws. Bad traffic. So there might've been a couple of 6" metal strips , huh?
" those nickle plated washers with a birm all around. I don't know what they call these washers"
They're called escutcheons
I thought they were called "Finish Washers".
