Help identifying 4 speed bench seat handles.

Tonight I went on a mission. I'm trying to sort out what bench seat shifter handles fit what cars, and what each one looks like. Quite a bit of info online but from what I can tell, LOTS of wrong info on this topic, so I dug into the limited resources I have. 

From what I can find, from 64-67 Canadian Pontiacs and Chevrolet used 5 different bench seat shifter handles. 

3859889 used in 65-67 full size Pontiac/Chev. I know for certain what that one looks like, I have one in my car. 

The rest I don't know. If anyone has indisputable proof that a certain shape handle is correct for a certain model, I'd love to see a picture of it. 

3853135 used in 64 full size Canadian Pontiac/Chev, 64 Acadian Canso, 64-66 Beaumont/Chevelle.

3859345 used in 65-66 Acadian Canso/Nova.

3886574 used in 67 Acadian/Nova only with Saginaw 4 speed. 

3903078 used in 67 Beaumont/Chevelle. Not sure if it's Muncie, Saginaw or both. 

Again, any help you have that you know to be accurate would be great. And as a reminder, I am not looking for any pictures of bucket seat shifter handles for console cars or info on them. I'd like to keep this dedicated to bench seat shifters to see if it's possible to figure out what handle belongs in what models.

I found a picture showing 4 handles. The one on the left I am thinking "may" be heated/bent at the bottom and then painted silver so the shape may not be correct. The other 3 look to be original shape still. None of the 4 pictured are the 3859889 for the 65-67 B body.
