Being a newbie to bikes. I’ve been looking at all these badges the last couple days and I’m just still amazed at them all. Here is my KING B , Smith brothers hardware co badge on my bike I got this year. It’s on a SHELBY frame , I’m really enjoying this CABE sight along with all the knowledge, TKS

Doood ... always thought that li'l monogram at
the bottom of the KING B badge was for Hibbard,
Spencer and Bartlett Co.


Now I learn it was for Smith Brother's Hardware Co.

If you are sure about this ... I want to be sure about
this, also. Do you have any supportive literature or
illustrations ?


Below is my Shelby-Built KING B .... waaay too many
years ago .....


Thank you for posting your KING B badge.

@zephyrblau ... Believe that plate features actor .. comedian and
athlete --Joe E. Brown.

Had a choice plate like yours .. it's in Texas, now. I believe the plate/club
was associated with a parochial school in the mid-1930's ... state of Louisiana.
Got into a deep Ethernet search back in 2007 ... no dice, these days.

Have never seen one of Brown's films that I did not like.

interesting Patric! never would have associated the design with a specific person(ality) I was told the N.O. in the name stood for New Orleans. I presume the members name would be stamped or engraved in the panel as circled ?
