1 and 3/4 seat jewel die

I got the three piece die for forming the metal shell for the 39 through 41 accessory jewel that harley sold in their accessory books. I have wanted to make this part for five years, I am making head way on it. This makes me so happy.
Here is a finished piece on the male piece of the die. You can see the female die in the upper right corner.

Here is the third piece that forms the inside chamfer. I still have to figure out how to crimp it all together, I will probably spin/crimp it on the lathe.

The first two are repros, the second from left is polished. The second from the right is an original jewel that I destroyed for reference. The end one is an intact jewel.
