 These have just become available for pre-order reproduction 71-72 bulge style center caps they look NOS complete with medallions in the pictures it looks like they come with the retainers. The 70 straight style will become available soon.

That's one of those items I'd really like to have in my hand to examine before I shell out the $$$ for a set.
"Prolly" is not a word.

 The only other option is the cast ones available from AMC vendors they are crappy not chrome finished only nickel plated with a gold tint there are ripples in the finish and the medallion is a flat light blue easy to distinguish from OE and now these at 50'. These have a chrome finish engine turned inserts with the correct translucent blue and come with the retainers for $29 more no comparison. When the 70 straight caps become available I am getting a set with a spare set of medallions like most other AMC reproduction parts get them while you can.

 There is another option a set of 50 year old NOS caps showing age on ebay for $2040 shipped I doubt they will look better than these repro's.

Just ordered a set of the medallions.  You have to strike when the iron is hot.  Thanks for posting they were available in something other than vinyl.
