What appears to be an original 13-16 hubcap just sold on ebay for $70! I wonder if any of you guys purchased it? I would like to know if it was the real deal? It appears that it could have, but the photo of it was taken at an angle, and was hard to tell. At any rate, that is a lot of money, and I hope the buyer got what he wanted.
I did not get to see the item before it sold, but real 13-16 hubcaps have the high F. If they also have the original black background paint on them, I've seen them get pricey.
You mean my 14 brass hubcap should have a black painted background?
Marty, Yes. Check Bruce's book for pictures, etc.
Yep. With a High F in the Script...
Think there are some in this pile

Keith, that is a nice real '13 hubcap you posted above. I'm always looking for those. I'm posting a photo of a '13 next to a '14-16.
This is a photo of the one that sold on ebay. I emailed and asked the seller for a straight on photo. I bid, but did not get it. The price surprised me!
I remember when you could get the whole car for $70.
Thanks! Now I have another (winter) project.
