The MADISON MOTORS CO. was founded by Cecil Gibson and Henry Nyberg.  Before H. Nyberg had his own car factory in Anderson / Indiana.

They offered a straight six engine with 22 hp, later with 24 hp.
Again there was no commercial succes and car production ceased in 1919.
Only 453 cars were sold so you have to look years for an MADISON emblem.

This emblem was part of the Lee Roy Hartung collection that was up for auction in 2011 ( please see Lee Roy Hartung  in the list  - top right ).

the two holes are not original

Dimensions4.8 cm
Year1915 - 1919

no makers mark on the reverse
