SCHACHT

SCHACHT radiator emblem

The SCHACHT company was an old-time buggy builder that began  car production in 1904. They became famous for their Highwheeler. Their slogan was the "Invincible Schacht".
They built ca. 9,000 cars in 10 years. The last year was the best year with 1,246 cars sold. But it was not enough so they turned into the truck production.
This emblem is from the Lee Roy Hartung collection / Chicago that was put up for auction in 2011.
