This happens when you are collecting emblems. You see an interesting vintage badge on a swap meet from a never heard firm. The vendor swears that it is a car emblem, precisely a French bus emblem, so you buy it.
At home you find no information at all. But one day you get it. You see an contemporary ad and there is the solution.

No car or bus emblem at all. I bought an emblem from an accessory manufacturer, located in Berlin / Germany.

1928 ad for an accessory car heater

1927 advertisment with the emblem shown above

the third advertisment  I was able to discover from CURRUS (1926)

For more emblems see older posts or top right  ( list of car makers )
