Late Teens - Early 20s Headlights with Liberty Lens. Studebaker?

Hello,

 

     A friend found this pair of headlights in a family barn and would like a little help identifying them.   I thought they might be black era Model T, but the guys on the MTFCA forum set me straight.  Their best guess is mid teens to late 20s Studebaker.  Can this group provide any further narrowing down?

 

The text on the lens reads:
Liberty Lens
Macbeth Evans
Glass Company
Dec 8 14 Type D No 47 69B

 

This is the post in MTFCA with some great info

Thanks Mark.  Do you know if the liberty lens was aftermarket or OEM?  Some internet sources say liberty lenses were almost exclusivy aftermarket, some say they were oem on studebakers and liberty automobiles...
