REPRODUCTION conical shaped name badge steering head dust covers for COLUMBIA LIGHT ROADSTER HIGH WHEEL BICYCLES 1885-1892 pre TOC era. The script is deeply pressed into the badge (not etched into the surface) from a very detailed press die that presses all the script into the metal in one pressing when it is in the flat state prior to forming to it's final conical shape. It is polished, then nickel plated and buffed to a bright luster. Excellent reproduction ready to slide and snap onto your antique high wheel penny farthing steering head. Perfect to complete your restoration or replace a missing piece.

Top script reads: COLUMBIA LIGHT ROADSTER MADE BY THE POPE MF'G. CO. PATENTED

19 PATENT DATES with one below the top script and 9 vertically along each leg of badge.

First patent date below top script is JAN. 3, 1869 to last date of Feb. 24, 1885

$175.00 + $8.30 Shipping to the lower 48 states.

I haven't seen this offered at Copake Antique Bicycle Auction 2020.
