Correct E & J Tail LIght for '13 T?

Is this black and brass E & J tail light correct for a 1913 T?

Thanks,
Gene

Yes. Although most guys try for matching all 5 lamps as to manufacturer. I don’t. I also have a b/b tail lamp but like the looks of my b/b Jno Brown cowl lamps.

Larry,
I have Bruce's book.

I'm new to the hobby and saw this lamp specifically advertised for an early T (1909-1912 which should be all brass).
I thought it was for a "13 based on what I've read/researched.
Just wanted to verify, as it was specifically advertised differently.

hi, I have some problem accessing all the forums. Would this Bruce's book be available through the MTFCA. I am interested in purchasing one. Does anyone know if they are still available?
Regards Michael

Thank you Gene, their are so many combinations of brass with the black and brass cowl and tail lamps I was wondering if this book has more detail. eg some have brass mount and some have all brass tanks also the section above the steel body I have seen all brass. Would like to know on a 14 what is correct in the E&J lamps.

Well, this is one Michael. It’s unusual because of the brass immediately above and below the steel body. Sure wish I could find the mate to it. It’s E&J pat’d 1908.....Yeah, touch the picture and it’ll right itself.🤪

I don't think that style was used on a Ford.
