REAR AXLE Mystery

I picked up a drive axle the other day for spare parts.I pulled it from,what I figured to be, a model F chassis. I got it home and started disassembly when I noticed that regular STAR hubcaps are too big for the hubs.The rest of the axle parts look correct. Even all the rest of the chassis components,were STAR,engine,tranny,etc.So my question for all you experts out there in Durant land is this: Since this is an early Star chassis and I know of no other size hubcap, why do they not fit? Somebody change out the hubs a long time ago? Is there another size hubcap out there? Also we wish David Jansen good health and a speedy recovery.
