Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2017: Identification needed- T hub flanges?

I've got a couple of these. They fit nicely on the outside of a standard T hub. They are approximately 1/16" thick. What are they?

As the spoke imprint suggests, you have the disc upside down. Apparently, the fingers are meant to go between the spokes. Just why would be the mystery. Some imaginary benefit to that?

Jerry- that was my first thought, and assumption. I put it this way just to show the fit. But because of the taper on the spoke, the fingers on these pieces don't fit between the spokes. I hope that makes sense (knowing a photo would explain it all).

Chris,
They go with the fingers pointed up or out and have a brass cap that covers the hub. An accessory item that was sold to dress up the hub.

Well shoot... Hmmm, maybe not for a T? Whatever the case, it's interesting.

Part of the assembly for steel spoke wheels?

Layden is correct. They are for s steel spoked accessory wheel like the ones made by Atlas Wheel company, commonly referred to as PG&E wheel. They had two styles for that sheet metal plate. One has a squared off edge like the one you have and the other has a more rounded edge. I have the more rounded set on my speedster.

Three of the 4 wheels on this set have the squared edge like yours. This set is currently on ebay.
