There weren't any round-corner ends made until 1939-40, so the 1937 cars must have had square corners. The problem with the R-40-23 is that it has a more modern rib pattern than the 4/4 early dreadnaughts we're talking about.
If you want to email the pictures to me, I'll post them in the STMFPH Files. (My curiosity is piqued!)

Richard, I may be misunderstanding you here; did both the 1937
and 1941/42 cars have round ends? Chet sent me a scan of IC 50165
awhile back , and by golly those look like square ends to me.
