REO hubcap

Jim Skelly

Recommended Posts

I bought this hubcap at a swap meet a number of years ago.  Most of the black paint is missing.  


I think it was only used for 1912 and 1913, and would like some expert to verify that.


Should I repaint it and if so, what paint should be used?


Thank you.

Yes, it looks like a 1912 REO hubcap.  I don't believe it should be painted (mine aren't).


I stand corrected.  After checking some period photos it looks like they were painted, as seen here.
