Mystery Hubcap - what is it off?

Hubcaps were the “jewelry” that could be added to a car to enhance it’s appearance.  In response to that idea many aftermarket hubcaps could be purchased as replacement items to make your Chevy a Cadillac, at least in the hubcaps area.  Years ago I was at a public sale for an auto parts store and I was able to buy several boxes of NOS aftermarket caps and trim rings cheap.  I sold them at local car shows, they were a big hit.
