Avanti escutcheons ID?

Recommended Posts

See picture below...............I was told these are door/window handle escutcheons for an Avanti. Received four of them with some other Studebaker parts. They are 2-1/8" diameter, stamped anodized aluminum. What I can't figure out is why is the back side look 'crimped over' ?  Is that how these were made, or has someone 'modified' these for some reason?

Thanks in advance for any help with this.

It could be part of the fabrication process or done that way to keep them from spinning against the vinyl covering of the door panel.

The attached might answer your question. The plastic insert goes between the escutcheon and the door panel.

Thanks Bob! So they are crimped like that from the factory. I appreciate very much you taking the time to dig the escutcheon out, take the pic, and post it.
