Default Roadster Door Knob

So I just took these two door knobs off of my AR28 Roadster and they are different from others I have. The one that was on my car is on the left and it has an octagonal shape. The one on the right is the other one I have that has a hexagonal shape. There is also some differences on the top and the base. So my question is, are the ones that were on my car a thing of early 28's? I couldn't find anything about it in the judging standards or anywhere.

They are Vintique. Buy them on eBay.

Chris: I just looked at the knobs on our 28 Phaeton. All 4 are repros, probably from Vintique. The head is 8 sided, like the one you have on the left of your photo. It fits a 5/8' open wrench, but NOT an 8 point 5/8" socket. So the mystery comes with your 6 sided door latch knob. Is it original? Like you, I couldn't find anything in the judging stands either. Can anyone else shed some light here?

If matching knobs are your BIG PROBLEM, you're a BLESSED MAN!!!

I'm kinda with Bill. If there is nothing in the judging standards, it doesn't matter which you use - you won't lose points either way.

I have an original knob that is 8 sided and is 9/16 wrench size . The top has the look like the one on the right with the double bump .

FWIW

Looking at the RG&JS I would say the octagonal lever arm knob is correct. Look at the attached RG&JS 12-10 revised 2016 item "W".
