Those really are a nice accent.
I've seen a few of those sets made in the past by some home grown restorers.
Their results are Very Good!
They take the Current repop tips.Remove the Chrome plating.
Bend & Weld round steel stock around the exit area to replicate the original design that was actually a rolled over lip.Clean up the area & Grind the weld flush to the extension tip body.Then have them polished & re-plated.
Finding real ones is so hard,this makes sense today.
