That isn't even a good repro! It is a copy of a tarnished barn find emblem. The originals have a gold flash on them. Here is a picture of one. The center one is NOS, The left side used, and the right side one I painted on and it has been bolted on the front of my toolbox for the last 30 years!

Here we go with the NOS crap again.. That thing looks too new even if it's been hermeticly sealed in a mayonaise jar on funk n wagnals front porch for the last 57 years..

What the ? Where did the reference to Johnny Carson come from? Did he used to quote Funk and Wagnal's or something?

Thanks jdpan.
I have always liked and collected trim and accessories. I have even built bikes around trim!
The NOS emblem was a dealer take-off that was found in a drawer. It will eventually go on my '54FLE if I ever quit getting distracted by other projects. In the meantime it will live in the case with the other stuff!
