Pointed bumper came around ’65 I thought, I’m thinking it was a carry-over from the later Splits to the early Bays, with the elongated brackets, I would agree with Hazetguy and say early Bay window.
Deluxe trim doesn’t look to bad, I’d say you got a nice little stash.

Thanks SS22. Smile

Will be parting with it shortly. I like my buses to have two windscreens. Very Happy

Need a pic looking at the inside of the blade to confirm, but I say late Euro split deluxe. The splash pan looks like splitty and I think I see a welded on inner plate where the bracket mounts, bay brackets bolt directly to the blade.

that would be helpful for sure.

like in the last pic, there is no inner bracket on the bumper

the bumper bracket is bay.
the trim looks too rounded at the ends to be split.
still looks bay to me.

It's quite possible, looking closer the splash pan I saw was on another bumper in the pile.

Peel the rubber out of the trim, if there's a couple bracket bolt heads visible it's bay.

Well I'd say Tim has the bumper info on lock Laughing
I don't its a bad deal to hold onto them, for what it's worth, these type of things usually hold pretty decent value.
Now if you come across a splitty truck rear bumper, you should sell it to me cheap. Cool Those things are ugly...
