    I picked these up in a big lot of stuff last weekend. I'm having some trouble identifying them; the person that gave them to me said he thought they were headlight rings (or bezels) from a Hupmobile, but I haven't been able to locate anything similar.

    Anyone out there have an idea what these are?

    And since I'll probably sell them, any idea what they're worth?

    What size is the inside dimension- they look like adaptor rings to fit a sealed beam headlight bulb to
    a larger headlight bucket.

    The screw for reference makes it look like they are probably adapter rings for sealed beams, as mentioned.

    Shot of the inside would help ID their use. Bob

    Huh.....they do look a lot like those....and the guy did give me some 20's Chevy parts. I don't see any numbers or anything on mine to say they're the real deal though.

    Honestly, not sure. I got a huge lot of stuff, and I'm not too sure what most if it is.
