Why would they have an "M" or "W" on a hub cap for an Olds.
Charles, did the people who had it, give you any clues????

it is 1939 oldsmobile ... don't know why they used the design like that, but the "M" or "W" isn't as noticeable in the next couple of years

As said above.

Maybe neither M or W but stylized rocket fins? Just a guess, perhaps the word "rocket" wasn't attached to the Oldsmobile name that far back. Bob

Is seems that it is not an M or W but evolved from something like this:


And had something to do with "Setting The Pace"

Can't say much for the design of the cars nowdays.
Most of them all look alike.

Boy, that question sparked a lot of interest and responses.

I saw the hubcap in an antique shop in NH last weekend. No one had any idea what it was from.

Never would have guessed Oldsmobile.
