The  German FAUN (= Fahrzeugfabriken Ansbach und Nurnberg) started truck production in 1918.
In 1924 to 1927 they offered a private car without any commercial success.
From 1928 to 1990 only commercial trucks were built.

Here I present to you the rare radiator emblem of the private car of 1924:

emblem of the only private car made by FAUN
Dimensionsca. 5 cm 
Year1924 - 1927

To my knowledge this is the oldest enameled truck emblem:

Dimensions7.0 cm x 7.4 cm
Yearca. 1930  

reverse without makers mark

Dimensions7.0 cm x 7.4 cm
Yearca. 1938 

reverse without makers mark

I have never seen a truck or a photo of a truck showing this particular emblem.
Nevertheless it is a wonderful item.
This FAUN emblem is showing a medieval  tower of the old city of Nurnberg

After WWII there were metal emblems only like this nice radiator cap.

For more beautiful car and truck emblems see older posts or top right ( list of car makers ).
