1951 Mercury Hubcap

I was strolling along at an outdoor antiques market the other day when the Mercury Man caught my eye:

This particular cap is correct for a 1951 Mercury. It measures around eleven inches in diameter and marked the Mercury Man’s return from hubcap hiatus. I grabbed it quick because I just never find them at the flea markets where I live. You know where else you rarely find them? On ’51 Mercs.

This ’51 Merc is sporting ’57 Cadillac caps with chrome bullets . . .
. . . . and this one has spinners.
