I don't think it should be too difficult to replicate.

Almost resembles a set of brass knuckles.

Is Guido the seller?

D/P it is a bit pricey. WE easi cleans are very hard to find. I have only ever seen one other style of the WE easi clean, which I own. It's a picture of the phone I found it on, it cleaned up to be very shiny. See the pic below as it is not completely open with the small edge. This is my auction and the one for sale is the second picture. Notice the etched numbers, really quite cool...Doug

Doug,
I'm guessing they never made these to fit the number 6 or 7 dials?
Do you know if they were all plated?

Stephen....these are the only two kinds I have ever seen to fit a WE dial. The AE easi cleans are more common and I have them in nickel, brass and painted black and made by AE. Every now and again, they sneak through cheap on a Galion or a SC. The WE are a different animal. Not sure if they were made by WE or made to fit a WE by someone else. Either way, they are way cool.....Doug
