Hello Marc and Sean,
I have attached 2 pages from the 1948 Constrictor catalogue, showing the low flange hubs and wingnuts offered, and one from the 38 showing their Circum spoking,. I dont think they produced high flange hubs, but pre-war offered what they called Circum Spoking, which could give the appearance of high flange when built. I dont think your hub is one of those.

Yes they did. I recently sold a Constrictor alloy low flange hub on eBay. It was marked "Constrictor" on the barrel. No wingnuts.

There is also an oil clip.
