    @cyclingday I was just discussing early Schwinn's with another collector and realized that the 1899 cat doesn't show the "Chicago" line of bikes. This means your badge has to be 1898 or earlier and I'm guessing the Chicago brand was only about a two year thing. If we can find cats from '95-7 it would answer the question. Undoubtedly your Chicago badge is THE grail Schwinn badge. V/r Shawn
