I don't know if both are original but they are reported to be correct.

Can anyone confirm if this kind of handle was actually used on barndoor:

It's a huf handle with part number 211.051 It doesn't have anywhere near as much of a crease on it, but everything else looks spot on including the thickness of the back of the handle

Do handle numbers appear in parts books?

I don't think the 211 means it was a bus part, all the handles i've looked at have this. I'm sure there is another thread on cab door handles but couldnt find it.... I think early handles should have a 29 part number later ie 54-55 are AL. Both having the 'crease'

Does anyone have a side photo of the hook piece on a 29.211.051 handle? I received a handle in pieces with the wrong hook and need to communicate what the right one should look like. Thanks in advance if you can help.
