Hi, I live near Lynchburg, Virginia where the Piedmont Motor Car Company was located. We recently acquired several boxes of early car related parts that belonged to a former employee at Piedmont. The attached image shows one emblem that he had. Are you familiar with this? We cannot figure out what it was on.

Badger: Sorry, I've never seen one like it before.  Perhaps someone else has some info?

Hello my name is Frank, I was hoping to get some help identifying this piece. I've asked several experts but know one has ever seen one like this before. Any information would help thank you for your time.

Badger: My guess is maybe Diamond T?  (Based on the diamond with the wings on top.)  But otherwise I don't have a clue!

wondering if you could tell me what vehicle this hubcap was made for. It's 7 3/4" in diameter and I'm guessing 1930s. I've searched a lot on the net and have not been successful. I know that people who specialize in things like this are probably the only ones who can help. Thanks.

Badger: I am not sure about the date. It seems entirely possible that it could be more recent, perhaps into the 1960's. As far as the car make: I am stumped. I don't recognize the crest. Perhaps someone seeing this picture will have a better idea. If so I hope they post a comment!

I am making major strides on my Emblem Collection. However, I am having difficulty identifying the one pictured in the attachment. Would you be able to tell me the make of automobile that it represents?

Badger: That's a fine enameled emblem, in very good condition, although the finish plating seems to have worn off.  I have never seen this one, nor does the design remind me of any car in particular. I wouldn't rule out some sort of appliance or machine emblem either.   Hopefully someone out there has an idea!  -Toni

My name is Marcus and im 17 and have been collecting antiques for about 3 years now. I recently came across a car emblem that had me stumped and everyone that i know stumped too. Heres a picture if you could get back to me with what it is that would be great.

Badger: Based on the materials and design, I'm going to guess that it is not too old, (from the 1970's or newer.)  I have never seen anything like it though.  Hopefully there will be someone out there that will have some suggestions.

Hello my name is Sarah, I am trying very hard to find information on a piece we have come across that we found in the back of a rat rod we happen to be working on. Anyone I have talked to has no idea what it is for. I was hoping maybe someone could help.
I have attached a picture, and it would mean a lot if anyone could tell me, or let me know where there would be a place to get information on this piece.


Hopefully this photo will be enough to jog someone's memory.  I have no idea on this one either.
