The 11 bar grill was the factory replacement when they quit making the screen grill. Your 52 grill would have looked like the one below. However, if your serial number is in the 16000's your Cub would be a 1948. Are you sure you don't mean it is in the 160000's?.

The four bar grill was offered as the replacement grill. The tall gas cap replaces the original as a fire hazard prevention measure. You can get a free one here: http://www.ihgascap.com
