To my knowledge this is the first enameled MOON Motor car radiator emblem they built. I guess that it is from 1912. I have never seen a second one.
If someone has a contemporary picture or ad,  please let me know. It is a large emblem with a flat backside.
This one is reenameled.
Dimensions7.8 cm x 5.3 cm
Yearca. 1912
