No, they were very reasonable when I pointed out the house paint and all the incorrect parts. Gonna' take a while to remove it carefully, but underneath the ugly red is quite a bit of original green paint with silver boxed pinstripes and detailing - I needed another winter project.
Winter project??? A few weeks ago you were unloading... Now your buying more stuff....

Patric, I thought you had this badge. I know I have seen it before. Catfish

Aw, Catfish ... I certainly wish I had that badge. I do have a NOS celluloid pinback
with the Tiger on it. This is a rarity, even in the Dayton area. Stoddard stuff just
does not show up with the semi-regularity that Davis or Miami stuff shows up.

The Stoddard Company was very inventive ... dealing only in the highest-quality goods.

Maybe I'm wrong .. but I do believe the very-first Indy Pace Car was a Stoddard.
The company started out with their farm-equipment venture.

Here are some catalog cuts that were on e-b maybe a month ago ............

Very possible both of these badges are on a fully-restored Cygnet .. at The American Bicycle Museum in New Bremen, OH.

In case anyone is wonderin' ... I had nothing to do with the screws selected to affix the left-badge to the machine.

Just picked up this VICTOR badge.

Believed to be early Schwinn (teens?).
Looks like the same deep etching, shape and enamel coloring as Kim's LIBERTY badge (below, right).
Hat tip to aasmitty757 for permission to glimpse into his deep collection ! !

onecatahula ... your particular VICTOR badge is a Davis ... made to go on a teen's-era
Davis-bicycle sold by Sear's. It was made by die-stamping, in the same manner as
aasmitty757's (Kim's) Schwinn Liberty badge .. shown above in your post ... to the right
of an acid-etched Schwinn Liberty. The unusual perimeter-shape (c'mon, now ... dat is a
very-unusual shape) is seen once-again in this Louisville Cycle, Famous badge ... which
is made via acid-etching.


Very-choice badge - your Victor .........

post script ... Thanks for the Head's Up re: this thread, Paul G. (CABE member bike).
