PEUGEOT / FRANCE

It is a pleasure to collect Peugeot emblems. Because of their history of more than 100 years you  still have the chance to find a never seen Peugeot emblem. My collection started with Peugeot emblems in the seventies. Now I own about 40 different prewar Peugeot emblems. And there are a lot  more emblems if you also collect the younger emblems.
