No medallion that I know of. There were a couple emblems you could buy as an accessory for the front fender, one was "OHV" and the other was "HyrdraGlide", if I recall correctly. Normally one would be installed on either side of the front fender---- but they didn't come from the factory with them on. The owner would purchase them separately.

Thanks, so the fender was just plain. That helps make things easier. :)

Hold on there fellas,
For 1952 if the Deluxe Solo Group was ordered, a "Deluxe OHV" nameplate was fitted to each side of the front fender. Deluxe Solo Group included:
Front safety guard-chrome, air cleaner, 500x16 wheels & tires, jiffy stand, chrome rubber mounted handlebars, chrome rims, chrome headlight, chrome taillight, stainless fork trim, chrome clutch cover, chrome timer cover, chrome inspection cover, chrome muffler, polished fork sliders and front brake side cover, chrome exhaust pipe covers and "Deluxe OHV" nameplates. Pictures a little bright

I should've checked my blank order form, James. You are correct. I'd like to be able to buy the Deluxe Solo Group for $65...!
My apologies, Doug.

No need to apologize, that's why were here.
Do you believe what we pay for this stuff today?
I'm going broke trying to make this bike correct.
Nice order form, where did you get it?

I got it from Chris Haynes. There are copies of other years on his website, as JohnHD points out. This particular copy was an extra that Chris sent me in the mail. :D
I know what you mean about 'going broke'. I've got a '52 I've been collecting correct parts for. It's a bitch finding good OEM parts that aren't junk and are affordable. Occasionally--- but rarely--- I stumble onto a good deal.
