    I think the question is: are they Silver or Golden? I think they are different.

        They are different.
        Silver are flat acros bottom to the point.
        Golden curve and go up to front point.

          Yes, they are different.

          However, you can make Golden Hawk fins out of the Silver Hawk's.

          Use the G/H stainless as a guide to trace the curve on the Silvers.
          Simply trim with metal cutters.

            Those don't look like '57 or '58 fins to me.

            Looks more like '59 or '60.

            To trim S/H fins into G/H fins, you'd need '57 or '58's.

              But you can't make golden hawk fins fit a silver hawk, right? Not without some welding?

                If those emblems are in their original location, (which I believe they are), then those fins are off a 60 Hawk.

                    Those are off a '59 Silver Hawk. (See how the front of the fin is "chopped" off?) $80 for shipping!?[B)]
