Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2014: Please Help Identify Brass Headlamp

Hello. I posted this on the aaca forum, but have't gotten any info yet. I was wondering if anyone could identify what year and model of automobile this headlamp is for (if any). From what I gather, Corcoran began producing automobile headlamps in 1905. This is similar to one that I've seen identified for Buicks, but this one is longer. I don't believe the Ford Model T used Corcoran lamps until 1914, at which time they were steel with brass trim. Overall length is 8 1/4 inches, outside diameter of the door is 7 1/2 inches, and fork width center to center is approximately 7 1/8 inches. Thank you!

My guess would be 1908 to 1910 and likely Buick

Nik, Looking at the pictures some more it appears that there isvery little flare on the front of the light which leads me to say 1910 model 10 buick. Iave owned several 1908 to 1911 Buicks so am familier with them.
