Do the original accessory OSRV mirrors on a 53 use the plate first and then the setscrew to mount? Does anybody make repops with that kind of mount. And, does anyone have any nice original I think AC 2340 mirrors if they have the type mount I am talking about. Any Pictures welcomed. Thanks

There were three different factory accessory outside mirrors available for 1953.
Since you mention repops and AC 2340, I guess that is the kind that you want (Strato-Style).
I do not have one handy to look at. I do not remember any visible screws, but there may be one near the mirror face. This would mean that there is a mounting plate, but I am not sure if it used a "set screw" or just a screw into that base. As you may know, the originals have a ratchet adjustment in the arm and the repros do not have this feature.
