Does anyone know when Schwinn stopped using this round headbadge on the Continental?

Looks like the last year the head badge was round and Continental specific was 62. 63 thru 66 still had a round badge but sported the S. 67 it went oval.

Wow. I had no idea that they kept it that long. Thank you! ;)

That particular badge was probably no longer when the old Continental production stopped. The 1960-62 was aluminum and printed, no raised detailing.
That’s the badge on my 1946 Continental

Here's the same model on that re-paint Continental I bought. All the paint is long gone on it, but once I polish it up it will still have a nice look to it. Ah, the craftsmanship and caring that went into the old bikes. Long gone, but that's why we covet them! :)

Howdy! How are you? I had a fellow ask me what head badge the 1964 Schwinn Continental would've had? Do you know? Thanks, Barry

The round aluminum with the S in the red center and two red rings. I'll see if I can find a good picture for details. Most all of these are found with the red ink faded away. All my bikes have the faded out red ink detailing.

Just a note, the fillet brazed models (Super Sport, Sports Tourer, Superior) wore the round red "S" badge through to 1970 when it was switched to the cross design thru to 1979.
