Name that Finger Wheel.

I have a little confusion going on here.
Can someone tell me what dial these Finger Wheels fit.

I think C fits a #6 dial not sure about A or B

A and C look the same to me.  Both will fit the #6 or 7 WE dials.  B will fit the WE #2-5 dials.  As it appears to be aluminum, my guess is it came off a 5H.

"A" came from a 6H dial, and "C" came from a 7A dial.
I didn't think the "A/C" style came from anything earlier than a #7 Dial. I thought pre 7 dial they were like "B". Thanks for the clarification guys. the dial on my 48-500 if you recall had the large center hole, but it was oriented differently that A, or C. When I saw that large center hole, for a minute I thought GEE I could have used #7 Finger Wheel on my phone, and saved the trouble of making one, but the center was at a different angle.
The more I'm learning about the 500 series, the more complicated it becomes, and I realize how little I really know.
