I'm stumped, so I figured I would post a few pictures and see if one of you could ID these. I initially thought these were buffalo hubcaps. I have four of them but only two are machined.

The thread count is 16

Don't know about Overland or Franklin, but Buick used axles made by Weston-Mott,as did most GM built cars, and other makes like REO. Each had their own distinctive hubcap, sometimes with a logo, sometimes not. Weston-Mott was the go to company for inexpensive front and rear ends in the 1903-15 era. Unfortunately, as in most things, you got what you paid for. Best, Jeff

I have a set of Overland front hubs by Buffalo and they are wider than a Ford and have a flange for front brakes. If your hubcaps have a triangle tooth shaped locking system and a round thin rod spring sort of like a safety pin to keep the wheel from walking off of the hub, they are Buffalo. Several different folks have made copies over the years and they didn't always engrave them with off and on arrows and the buffalo.
