Cast Welt Tips for Early '30s Makes Wanted

Anybody have a source for original, or original style reproductions of these used on early '30s Cadillacs and perhaps other high end cars of the era? Not the current day stamped steel versions that need a trim nail through the top. The originals were a cast piece with the nail attached at the bottom (some call them T-Nails) which were chrome plated. They were sort of an arrow shape with a crowned center line of sorts. Seen these used on ACDs as well May have been used on other high end cars of the time as well. Lebarron Bonney and Restorations Specialties do NOT carry them. Thanks for all leads

Do you have a picture of what you're looking for?

Unfortunately I do not. These were used on each corner of the interior door panels where the wire-on met at a 90degree angle. Today they are called Welt Tips by many resto shops but all I can find are the stamped steel types that take a nail through the top. The originals had no nail head showing at all
