Thanks Darrel. Our 1906 N has the same hubcaps as 1909. Good to see the changes as they occurred.

After July 1911 the rim was added around the Ford Script.

Here are some of my restored originals for my November-ish 1911.



The "Made in USA," like Darel shows, was added in April 1912.

It is interesting that when they chose to reproduce the brass hubcaps, they chose the 1920's style rather than the '13 or '14-17 style. They did the same thing with the running boards. A 13-14 running board is totally different than a later style, other than the placement of the Ford script.

Darel: It is a pleasure to see someone who knows his hubcaps! I'll take that '13 hubcap of your hands, unless it has a usual crack, which happens when you find a good one!

It is cracked and bent. I may have another, but if you know my garage, it would be a long, long look.

As for the 1909-10 cap, I have another original and the Ford script is heavier. If these were used on N,R, and Ss, there are probably variations. The one with the heavy block letters is off a mid 1910 T. I will be gone for a few days. When back I will post a photo.

Some of the new T caps were made from original dies, at least that what was reported 50 years ago. The 26-27 dies were discovered in the office of one of the original suppliers.
