Here is an original script from a 54 Fleetwood I previously owned.  Fairly certain that this one is an original (which makes me think that the gold one on my current 54 is incorrect).  This has the same appearance as my 55 FW script, but different from my current 54 FW script.


This Cobalt Blue 54 FW was an early production unit in the 54 model year (see the attached photo of the frame number).  And it has the same script as my original 55 FW.  So that tells me that the script on my current 54 FW (which is different from those two) is probably incorrect.  Rats.

The one on your current 54 looks like the one for 52-53. This eBay seller I contacted said he's been selling that one as 54-55 for 20 years, and really didn't want to hear anything different from me, I think.  I bought the piece he had advertised as 52-53, which was a really nice repop of the right one for our Ikes.

Perhaps.  Here is a 52 FW script...

I bought the one advertised as 52-53. The eBay seller still didn't want to hear that they were listed backwards.  He has another one listed now. https://www.ebay.com/itm/CADILLAC-1952-1953-FLEETWOOD-18K-GOLD-PLATE-REAL-NICE/152900428379

This is a really nice reproduction. Nicely plated and the script is almost perfect.
