BAUER U.S. Taxicab

BAUER TAXICAB CHICAGO

The BAUER TAXICAB MFG. CO. produced only taxicabs for a little over two years from 1925 to 1927.
The cab was reffered to as "wreck-proof" this owing to its rigid body construction [ Kimes,Clark].
This very, very rare emblem from the Lee Roy Hartung collection (Chicago) was put up to auction in 2011.

On the back of the original emblem you can read the maker´s mark:

 MADE BY AMERICAN BADGE CO CHICAGO.


Dimensions 6.3 cm
Year1925 - 1927
Estimate
