Not much is known about the REILAND &  BREE TRUCK COMPANY of Northbrook / Illinois ( 1924 - 1931).
The first edition of Georgano´s encyclopedia of Commercial trucks, published in 1978, does not mention this firm. All I know is that they were in the goods vehicle business with a load capacity of one ton or over.  So this emblem is a hard to find item. You have to look years for it.
