William, Is that a date (7-22-58) on the bottom next to the part number?

I believe so. Used the label for many years.

Chick this probably doesnít help much but of the samples I have all of the originals have the seam.  Now I do have one that is a 4 of 74 and itís seam is VERY faint.  I can post pics later but doubt itíll help.

Originality / Original door mirror fame
« Last post by 68camaroz28 on December 13, 2017, 09:25:41 PM »
During Legends judging I had a demerit since our original door mirror had no mold line in the mirror frame but I had had it re-chromed so it was assumed including me, that during preparation the mold line had been removed. The mirrored glass is dated October 1967. I had taken out the dated glass by soaking in mineral spirits for a couple days. Seemed unlikely they would have buffed that seam out but at the time the only thing I could think of at the time.   
Our mirror base showing the underneath part # and the top area normally seeing a mold line.




My assumption that the mold line was taken off at the chrome platters kind of changed or at least cautioned when I observed a very original un-molested Lemans Blue 21K mile 68 Z/28 being judged in that always great survivor class at this years MCACN which just happened to have the same looking door mirror base as ours.



Has anyone else seen this no seam looking door mirror base? To be honest Iíve never looked at mirrors on cars prior looking to see if the mirror had a mold line or not but I am now. Thanks in advance for any information.

"Pacecarjeff" on ebay also appears to be selling a correct paper reproduction much like the web site provided by Darrell.
Thanks again for all the interest and great reply's.

My 1st thought. Not sure he is still doing these? For some reason , I thought his health may be preventing? Not sure where I heard that. Doesn't hurt to try though.

This is NOS, sitting in a drawer for about 30 years. Measures 5.0" x 6.44".

Not self-adhesive; glued to the lid.
Awesome picture William. Thank you. I'll be needing one of those seeing how mine fell off in the trunk and just about turned to dust when I went to move it to my console for safe keeping...

Wow that's a perfect specimen and definitely answers this question once and for all (and confirms my suspicion). The one from Camaro Central has round corners but the correct part number. I just asked them about it and the guy who I talked to said they have been selling this for 30 years and no one has ever mentioned that it is incorrect. He assured me my sources that indicated 1968 decals had square corners were wrong. Oh well, there are still some vendor issues out there so buyer beware. Thanks again for your prompt reply and the great picture! This is such a good forum.
