Thought I’d show it.. the bike we have seen before but I never seen a odd badge like this. Perhaps heard of this company?

    Steinfeld was the exclusive dealer/distributor for Columbia's line of children's bikes, tricycles and other riding toys in the 20's. They also carried a line of Westfield made adult bikes branded as "Jewel".

    That awesome thanks. I thought it was weird to see this badge on this bike.. it looks out of place on a adult bike...

    If it's smaller than 28' wheels, they were considered "Child/Youth" bikes.

    Likely someone just threw that badge on there due to the original one went missing. Your badge is actually pretty uncommon.

    The fact that the "Boycycle" model was a childs tricycle pretty much says it did not come on this model.

    Wow... you read my mind... I just checked the hole pattern out and it’s not matching up at all. Also the fork is wrong on it too. I’m looking at the paint to see what’s up on that. It looks like a 1918 -19 era also...I’ll post a few pics later on this thank you.

    It's a Military model frame anyway about 1920-21. Very desirable model. Hard to find badge. Probably was removed to sell independent of the bike.
