Total newbie on this forum, but not a stranger to vintage bicycles. Stranger to actually working on them competently, though.

I've just paid for a 1953 JC Higgins Colorflow (women's) in light and dark blue that appears to be all original, save for the hand grips, tires, jewels, and headlight.

I've done a good bit of looking into which parts are and are not correct, and I've got one question:
What are the correct hand grips for a 1953 Colorflow? In the pictures I have seen here and there, it's really hard to tell, except that they are definitely not all the same. I appreciate any answers on this matter. Thank you!

This might be a good question to post in the General section. Lots of viewers there.
