Doood ... the Liberty Bell badge that you posted
is the only one I've ever seen. It's possible I may
have missed some ... had been involved with
badges, only since the mid-1980's.

Our friend Smitty has one in better condition, but no paint. I've researched the company and it's in the book. Now I have a Liberty Bell Special bicycle to add to the book.:D

@aasmitty757 also ended up with the only
absolutely MINT Sear's Chief badges that
I have ever seen.


Had acquired these three over many years.

The Chief badges represent three different
eras of Chief Bicycle production.


I had hoped he might post these three in this
thread ... in color. ...... I do believe I may have
posted them earlier in this thread ... but I think
they are presented in black and white -- from
when I wrote the Soul Searchers column in
Classic Bicycle News.

Thank you Patric in every way possible!

Kim ... you are very, very welcome.

I see you as an authentic collector in the
very-best sense of the word.


The integrity you show by eliminating any
manner of braggadocio .associated with
the collection you have orchestrated -- is
to be revered.


I applaud your manner.

Thank you for posting The Three Chiefs - Kim !!

I was all excited this didn't get destroyed with the rest of the bike. The bike was a mess by the time it got here. Wow!
To my surprise, the badge had screws holding it on. They looked like rivets in the photo. I took it off and soaked it in hot soapy water, then used my nails, fingers and a tooth brush to get a bunch of the house paint off. I think it turned out pretty good guys. Here's a before and after. I'm still working a little on it. Barry
