The ratio of depth to diameter of the Heflin object is about
3.8, that of your trainwheel about 4.3.

The ratio of the "dome" diameter to the total diameter of the
Heflin object is about 1.45, your trainwheel about 1.2.

The thickness and angle of the flange in relation to the "dome"
are plainly different.

Your trainwheel traction surfaces are exactly vertical to the
rims, Heflin's object appears to have a slight taper.

Your trainwheel has a very prominent boss on top which is not
present on the Heflin object.

Since your own photos indicate that all your statements are
untrue, would you like to explain why you made them?
