ID this trim?

Attached is a pic of a pair of pin retainer/upostery protectors I pulled out of my truck after a pass under the wire wheel. I know that they are not original to the truck, they are actually too big in the center for the door handle and window crank, but I think I could work with them. Question is... What did they come off of? They are spring loaded, with the center 'dome' part retracting into the ribbed base. Any help? EDIT... I need two more

Unkamort....not sure what they are off of, ut I know the older Fords and probably others that had one similiar also had a plastic style washer on top that would be the size of the top dome and then have a recessed area that waent into the larger hole. Then the hole in the plastic part was not much larger than the part protruding from the regulator. I have a box of old handles and such in the attic i will go through in a little while.

Thanks! Even if you don't want to sell, finding out what to look for would be a big plus.

I don't think it's exactly the same, but something similar is used on '55-6 Mercury hardtop quarter window regulators, I couldn't say for sure on Fords but probably on Crown Victorias, and it is quarter window only, not used on the front door window cranks.

Sounds a little odd... not matching 1/4 window and front window cranks, but I'll take your word for it. Should have paid more attention when I was a kid... If I even knew that its been loooooong forgotten.
