Got it. Mercedes continued the wheels with dog dish nubs for caps AFTER they started using the full wheel cover. My 68 280S had original full wheel covers with the dog dish style rims. I don't know when the dog dish rims went out of production, but I do know they they were shipped on cars with full wheel covers.
I think for W108 cars the changeover between dog dish to full wheel cover was 1967 dog dish, 1968 full wheel cover, but the wheels themselves would take either for I guess a couple years.
