If you are trying to sell them would you take $20 for both + shipping?

I think they are Superior reflectors, between '23 and '26. Probably '26 and Guide brand. They are designed to be used with a plain glass.

They are for the 1928 National. I stand corrected, but I think they are unique to 1928.

They are the same as the original items on my 1926 coupe.

Yes, one year only - 28. The silver is in better shape than the ones I have for my project. I believe the ones for your 26 have been replaced sometime in the past they should be smooth.

I have to disagree as the car I had was a VERY low mileage car (it was in a fire), so I doubt that they were replaced. I also see many original cars on sites that have those as originals. Not to mention that my 1926 manual shows the ribbed items for the "Superior" model for 1926....

Superior, Superior K ('25) and V ('26) and '27 Capital all had ribbed reflectors and plain glasses. The diameter of the reflectors shown might help identify them. Also, so far as Superiors were concerned, I think the inner fender mounted ones were Indiana and the later bar mounted ones with aluminum band were Guide.

I don't know if they're 1928 National only, but the original '28 that my late father and I restored years ago had them.
