1969 only, trailers had 3 square corner and 1 radius corner wing windows.
They are expensive.
They can be replaced with wing windows from the 1970 and up models, which are also cheaper, which have 2 square corners and 2 radius corners.
When that takes place, the lower, outer missing square corner, must be plated in, as your photo shows.
There are a number of 69 trailers that have the newer style wing windows, the same as yours.
