Default 28 glass trademark size and look

Hello all,
Im curious if anyone out there might know what the proper size of the glass trademarks for the windshield, windwings, or rear window for 1928. If anyone has originals and would be willing to post images, Id love to see the original look of them.
Thanks so much!
Mark

Also see page 10-3 of the Standards. Shows 1 3/4" from the side of the windshield to
the center of the bug and 1 1/4" from the bottom of the glass to the bottom
of the oval .

Thanks all for the quick info! In terms of reproducing these, would anyone know what the most common method or trick would be? I've seen a few mentions of acid etch but making a stencil seems impossible with the oval in the center. Perhaps a stamp to apply the etch? Thoughts?

Many thanks!

Yunno, I had that same thought. We've talked about this here.

Roy is still around but seems to specialize in hardware of the Ford authentic kind. http://fordscript.com/
He does admit to doing some "new" things like steering spiders and other Ford specific components.

No mention of glass at the website, however.
