I'm usually not real big on correct accessories but these caught my fancy on my way home from the Shades of the Past Rod Run in Pigion Forge. I had stopped to visit an old friend and he was telling me he had bought some NOS stuff.

Unfortunitely he would not sell the quarter script pieces for the prico on the box.

They did come home with me though.

Good catch. I love real Chevy parts. I'd much rather have a pitted, real emblem than a shiny new one from China.

40grit,
Those quarter scripts are beauties, especially sitting next to the black box.

Great find. Reproductions I have seen are terrible in their detail.

According to the 1929-1954 Master Parts Catalog, they cost $3.50 each; new. Now-a-days you'll find the "box only" on eBay for that much.

The gentleman that had them had two set with three boxes. (2 in one box). He said he had promised a set to a friend but I could have the other set.

I left two of the boxes for his friend but took what I thought might be the best two pieces. Actually, They were all pretty close to the same.
