Auburn hubcap - any idea what year?

Recommended Posts

Spoke wheels with knock-off's was not exclusive to speedsters.   It is not unusual that the ears are ground down, because they have been excessively beat on.  The side mount spares are different than the other four.

Its a knockoff wheel retainer . Auburn had a special wrench that engaged the outside diameter and the pointed dogs to wind it on or off to remove or replace the wheel. Most owners carried a dead blow hammer to make sure it was set tight but not so tight to pull the center of the cap out of shape. Its 1930 I believe.
