Default 39 Standard hub cap

I am looking for help identifying the proper hub cap for 39 Standard Coupe. My car came with 3 that I assume are correct but I wish to confirm before I put a lot of effort into completing the set. Also, I would also appreciate suggestions for sources.

I have attached a photo (apologize for poor quality) of my hubcap which measures about 11 1/8 inches in diameter.

Many thanks!

Be careful! 1939 standard hubcaps have been repro'ed for a long time. The chrome plating is not the best. Original 1939 standard hubcaps were made out of Henry's rusless steel. Nice ones are hard to find. Old posts will show the differences.

Not one of Ford's prettiest efforts.
I prefer the look of the 38 std or 38 deluxe hubcaps.

The pic you supplied looks to be a 39 Deluxe hub cap. The pic supplied by 30six shows the 39 standard hub cap.
Sometimes can find them on Ebay. Took me about 2 yrs to locate a 38 standard hub cap to complete a set. All the best.

This is the correct Hubcap for the 1939 Ford Standard model. Notice that it has a small V8 in the centre.

This is the correct Hubcap for the 1938 Ford Standard model. Notice that it has a large V8 in the centre. The V8 is similar in size to ones on the 1938 Ford Deluxe.

I find them at Hershey . I see 20-30 every show. I polish the center and repaint the painted part. This is for my tired '39 pickup, so they ain't perfect. I might have an extra

I had restored the car in this photo a number of years ago. I recall the difficulty to locate a decent set of correct caps. As I recall, I had about 20 hours of labor in this set to restore properly.
