Help dating a chrome horn ring

This horn ring was on my '49 F1 when purchased earlier this year. Why? Who knows. The steering wheel was in pretty bad shape, but the ring, with a little polishing effort, is in VG condition. I visited various websites and understand the gear and lightening bolt logo was used in 1953 trucks and forward. The horn rings I found on-line all had a removable center cap, while this one is solid metal. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

I don't know why my attachments were supersized???

Thanks, Jeff

Look on the backside of the horn ring for a casting number, post what it is, as there are several possibilities.

The only thing I can tell you is, it's no older than 1959, no newer than 1964 and it was used on a Custom Cab.
