The basic stamping of the 300C and 300D hubcaps is identical. The center cones (about 3" diameter are different. For the 300C, the hubcap is painted flag red in the center depression and argent silver in the outer edge rectangles. For the 300D, the hubcap is painted flag red in both the center depression and the outer edge rectangles. The 300C center cone is all 4 piece chrome or stainless (two types during production) whereas the 300D center cone was 1 piece chrome pot metal but the center was open to take the familiar red/white/blue plastic medallion.
