    dug an older Bentley hub cap ?

    found another hub cap , this one dug out of a dump and it does have some condition issues . such as dents and rust on the back .

    I'm not 100% sure which car its from , since it has a B , I'm thinking it could be from a Bentley but not sure as I'm not that into automotive items , if anyone knows anything more about it that be helpful


    the dump was likely used by affluent American and Canadian cottagers so that's partly why I'm thinking it could be from a Bentley

    That's funny, it looks similar to Bentley hubcaps online but the B looks like the completely wrong font.

    that's partly why I'm not exactly sure what its from , I'm pretty sure its a hub cap off a car , what else could it be ?

    are there any other brands from that time period that used a B ?

    I haven't been able to find anything else out about its origins but certain it must be an automotive hub cap , really can't see what else it could be after looking at the back , seems to be right size and shape


    did try cleaning the front and it is starting to look different

    I could be wrong but I believe that is a 1934 or 1935 Buick hubcap. I'm no expert but I've seen them before and that was what I was told.

    did some more searching using 1930's buick and a couple that look very similar did come up , odd its from the 30's as the nearby garbage seemed to be more 50's

    This style is definitely 1930's...would have fit the wire spoked wheels from that timeframe. Usually about 8" in diameter?
