Hi guy's I found this rear oil lamp with license plate bracket
The lamp the typical small lens on the side and big lens on
The door but they reversed small lens is red and big lens is clear and the stamped steel plate bracket is curved and has
Ford. O Stamped on it also the big clear lens shines on
The plate I wonder if it's standard or someone messed with
And what model it belongs to .
Jim, we need a photo.
It's the revised tail lamp introduced in 1923 for non-starter cars.
It's not rare. The bracket is probably harder to find for those who need it.
1923-26, non-starter cars.
From the on-line encyclopedia at: http://www.mtfca.com/encyclo/I-O.htm#lamps it has for tail lamps: for 1923-25 (and the non-starter 1926 cars):
6568BX (Oil) about mid-1923 and later.
The later oil tail lamp with the small red lens at the rear and the large clear lens on the side facing the license plate.

The oil tail lamp, 6568BX, introduced in early 1923, was similar in style to the earlier but now had the large lens facing the license plate, with a small red lens on the side, facing the rear. This lamp had the mounting stud on the side opposite the red lens. (It is possible that the earlier type tail light was used as well, depending on the laws of certain states.)
And from page 321 of Bruce book, they show the Ford-O on the side opposite the large clear lens.
It was used on the non-electric starter cars.

I apologize Jim, I get easily caught up and confused with written details. Apparently there are a lot of people on this forum that are literate and understand the written word.
On another note, I'm writing this on a iPad tablet and I post picture with very little problem. I use my tablet for the photos and a downloaded photo resizer from the internet.
Here's a picture of my foot.
You can nearly sense the ambiance in the room!
Mike you know you've only got like 6 more weeks left without snow, you need to be outside every minute!! =P
That looks like my foot without the sock.
