Haven't scored a decent badge in all of 2015 ..
i often get on ebay for a peep.

It's been forever since i've seen a truly-stunning
or historically-significant badge there.

So, am eyeballing the offerings .. when a really
historic and exotic badge appears ... only minutes
from the close of the auction.

No bids ... but when the auction closed, the badge
was spoken for. Aarrrgh !!

Just below is what i believed was the earliest
Davis Dayton badge available. 1895 thru 1913.

But the badge that was won is earlier, but still
within the confines of 1895, if Davis history is to be
believed.

Davis history indicates the company was building
bicycles as early as 1892 -- the Dayton being built
beginning in 1895.

If there ever was a Davis grail badge .. this is
the one. (Bottom two fotos)


Maybe one day i will learn who won that badge .....

Initial cleaning with mild hand soap and soft toothbrush.

Final cleaning using no polishing agents. A pink pearl eraser was used to clean and highlight the raised areas of the badge. Krylon matte finish applied as a sealer to prevent re-oxidation.
