horn button


I have a horn button that has 3 stars?, small chrome circle on a red background with the letters Pontiac at the bottom about 3 3/4'' wide. I would like to know the year it came from. Anyone?
Thanks

Sorry its not a 53/54 for sure. the horn button on those years show only the Indian head.  So I would say its either later than 54 but maybe earlier than 49. I will do more research to find a closer year.
The first shot is from a 51. The second is from my 54.

I might take a stab at it and say its probably in around the 58/59 era? And the reason I say this is because that's just about the time that they decided to get rid of the Indian head. But if I remember correctly is in 55 they stopped using that emblem on most of the pontiac's.

OK found one off a 59 nope. Its got to be some where earlier. I saw a 35 and its just the writing of pontiac across it. So now I'm thinking from 37 to 48 somewhere in those years.

Here is a 39 picture I took myself. I think the stars indicate 50's.

This is a 54 hood emblem insert. Notice the appearance of the stars zeroing in on the 50's era for useage of the button in question.

Here is a '61, with one giant star so it predates 1961 and I'd say after 54.

I think 73SC has got it peged down. I spent some more time looking at this and I would have to say possibly its a 1960 horn ring. Anything pre 41 is just the word Pontiac. 49 to 50 is one star with pontiac on it. 53-54-55-56-57 all show the indian head in different variations. 58-59 show a non round button and offset ring. I have not been able to find a 60 button to confirm, but seems like the year to have that look.
