Does a 1913 Roadster hood have leather corners on both ends of the hood and on both sides?

I didn't find any reference at all to hood corner pads in the encyclopedia, but Lang's catalogue lists them in pairs.

Aftermarket item?

Factory applied to the rear corners only (note the rivet holes in the hood).
It's basically a diamond-shaped piece of leather, sewn on one side to make a pocket corner; the seam goes on the inside of the hood, just to one side of the split rivet.

There was a leather strip tucked in to the underside of the hood on the front and the rear. No corner pieces, and no holes in the hood for such things in brass era T's.

There was no 1913 roadster body style available from Ford in 1913. Ford offered three body styles in 1913, they were the touring, town car, and runabout. You could also buy a bare chassis.
