CJ5 Golden Eagle Rims?

I've had these rims for a while and always wondered if they were original Golden Eagles. I'm not an expert in CJ5's (more of a flatfender guy) and haven't been able to diagnose them from looking at others. What do you guys think?

I have a full set of 4.

A couple of things help indicate they are Golden Eagle wheels:

1) Black pinstripe on wheel

2) Lack of center cap mounting holes. Center caps were introduced in 1981.

Golden Eagle was produced 1977-1980.

Thanks for the info guys, I appreciate it. It would be a sin to put these on my offroad 2A then. Are they worth anything selling the set of 4?

They are yours, do what you want.

That said, there was is some value to them, enough so that I would sell/trade them to someone who appreciates/wants them, and run a set of aftermarket wheels instead
