Mirror

Does this look to be a genuine accessory for the early model T? Sure would appreciate your knowledge and comments.

I think it would be an accessory for any car that came without a mirror, not just Ford. Ray Harroun's car in the 1911 Indy 500 is generally credited with being the first to wear a mirror, so it would be after that. It looks like the kind commonly used in the twenties, but I don't know when those began.

Also, it appears it was for a closed car by the looks of the bracket. The ones for open cars had a bracket shaped to fit the windshield frame.
