So I  remain puzzled.

The part numbers for the 2 inner protrusions  are:

Left: 311 837 205F
Right: 311 837 206F

(There were also  B & E versions for both L & R.)

You wouldn't feel like pulling  off a door handle and comparing 
numbers, would you?    ;-)   The numbers are molded into the visible 
face of those  parts, right around the screw head that holds them in 

And,  yes, except for that inner protrusion, everything's identical 
for '68-'71,  and '72-3 are also the same except for the 2-finger  

Jim, sorry I hadn't gotten back to you on this, but things came up.
Today I did get a chance to pull the handles (yes I pulled both sides  
looking for those numbers), and didn't find anything except part of the  casting 
number on the inside indent of the handle itself (other than the key cut  
number). And of that casting number, I could just barely read (with my  
glasses on, and using a magnifying glass) 111/113/311. I couldn't make out the  
rest, as it looks like it was either ground off, or it was barely there when  
originally cast. Where you were describing, is completely ground smooth,  
and chrome plated, unless I'm missing something. But putting them side by 
side,  they sure look identical. But apparently, the handle castings are the 
same as  used in a bug, but the inside parts are different.
