The FOSTORIA Light Car and Co was active from 1915 to 1916. A total of 293 FOSTORIA cars were built by September 1916. Reportedly, the problem was the engine FOSTORIA had bought from Sterling Motors in Milwaukee.  They were lemons [ Kimes, Clark ].

found in the ground 100 years after the car burned down

Size7.9 cm x 4.7 cm
Year1915 - 1916

original emblem with makers mark:  S.D. CHILDS & CO CHICAGO

As it is incredible rare Harry Pulfer from California reproduced the emblem in the nineteen-sixties of the last century. As pattern he used a black and white advertisement.
As you can see the colors are different and the emblem is flat while the original is curved.
