Sorry - can't seem to locate mine - and the photo above show the correct hinges - 1914 only had the double bumps !

Thanks for the photo and the information we didn’t know exactly what it looked like. Our car currently has Diamond Brass hinges which are not correct.

I might have one or a pair out in the barn. I'll write myself a note to check on them tomorrow and get back to you.
Seems like I displayed them once b4 on the old forum but no interest. They don't go bad in a drawer, so still should be
pretty good if I DO have them!!

David K...shoulda checked my picture file first! I'm positive I still have these...these I think are the '14 style as Steve mentioned... They're in pretty nice shape..but still gotta make sure they're in the barn somewhere. Here's the pic anyway...see what you think.

Off set indicates later models.
Looks appropriate for a 19 Touring

David K.,
Are you sure that the Diamond hinges with the brass plates do not belong on your 1914 touring?
I think that maybe the earlier 1914's could have those hinges, before the standardized "double bump" steel hinges came out on the 1914 windshields made by Rands, Vanguard, and Diamond. Then I think all of the windshield parts are all the same and interchangeable between the suppliers for 1914.
Do you have the bowed support braces, and does the top section of your windshield fold back into the car? Does your windshield look like this 1914 Diamond brand?

Yes mine looks like that. The problem is that the top windshield will not lock vertically. I believe the problem lies in the hinge?
