Interesting stuff, Shawn.
Now, all I need to do, is find a nice original 1898 Chicago model 31 to mate my badge to.

I know, good luck on that one.
Haha!
@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

Those images come from the "50 Years of Schwinn-Built Bicycles" book. I would love to see any cats or literature from 1895-97 that we haven't already seen. V/r Shawn
