    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 .....

    Nice observation Patric, However i do feel that this is the earliest Dayton badge.... only slight difference from the one you posted.

    dayton military badge 1918 copy.gif


    As acquired .. previous-owner foto.

    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.
