      They look early, from what I see of the hub.

    Here is a picture of my late 1928-1929 wheel.
    The flange on the hub where the short spokes are welded measures 1 3/8" on the inside.
    I think the early 1928 flange is about 1/4" less.

      Early 28 wheels have a narrower hub.

          Pat, you live in the sunny south, 100 miles south of me. LOL
          I went outside at 2 in the morning the other night, and we had a few snowflakes.
