ROLLS ROYCE UK / USA

ROLLS ROYCE pre 1934 radiator emblems

Of course every collector has a ROLLS ROYCE radiator emblem in his collection.
Here you see the three most interesting emblems. They all are pre 1934 because from this year on the letters became black. May be because of the death from Mr. Charles Stuart Rolls who  died in 1933.
But I think the reason is that it looks more serious.

ROLLS ROYCE made in USA
ROLLS ROYCE of America started production in Springfield, Massachusetts in 1921. They went into bankruptcy in 1935. A little bit more than 3,000 ROLLS ROYCE of Amercia were built in 14 years so the emblem is remarkable rare. This emblem is from the Lee Roy Hartung collection that was put up for auction in 2011.
