    Default Hood Ornament 1930 Standard Coupe

    I am new member just bought a 1930 Standard Coupe and boy am I getting an education (pain) on wood bodied cars. My question is on hood ornaments. Lots of misrepresented stuff out on eBay as I have learned the hard way.

    Here is the question. I purchased a hood ornament that according to the "Motoring Mascots of the World" reference book is correct, and it does fit the radiator and grille shell opening (unlike the previous two I bought before buying the book). The detail is perfect, the piece excellent, no complaints. But the face is copper plated. I noted in the book that several models come with copper plated faces but it looks like in the book 30-31 might be just chrome -- not enough detail to be sure. I also got great picture from another POCI owner of 1930 car and it looks like his is chrome -- I have asked him to confirm but have not yet heard back. Does anyone know when copper face is correct and for what models/years?

    I will post pictures of mine if anyone interested and I can figure out how

    I am going to mail you a photocopied page from Walt Harris's book "Pontiac Hood Ornaments and Mascots", hopefully that will help.

    Also contact the Early Times Chapter, Arnold Landviogt email etc@hillclimber.com

    Thank you Paul. Will that be an email attachment or a hard copy in snail mail? I will try to find that book on Amazon
