H5 Fender mounts

Hi all,
I am making some progress with my H5, and am getting ready to hang the fender and running boards.
I have examined 4 different H5- all 1908.
and I find:
-one car with all fender irons mounted under the spring U-bolts
-3 cars with the rear fender irons under the spring U-bolts and the front fender irons lagged to the front wood.
- one car with 2 bolts only on the front fender iron, the third, center bolt has been cut off.
- 2 cars with three bolts on the front fender irons.
Does anybody have any photos that would help arbitrate my final decision?
Or point me to a known original car.

There are 5 Model H-5's that are considered to be factory survivors.

3479, in a private museum in Missouri
3714, recently sold, whereabouts unknown (by me, anyway)
3719, in private hands in Pennsylvania
3768, publicly viewable in Yorklyn, Delaware - []
another under restoration in Michigan

Many recreations have been built, but all of them are patterned after one or more of these 5 cars.
