The ALLEN Iron &  Steel Company ( Philadelphia / Pennsylvania ) was famous for its high quality steel production. (Don´t mix it up with the same named company Allen of Fostoria / Columbus ).
In 1914 they announced the  production of a small automobile in the cyclecar field.
It had a four-cylinder water cooled 20 hp engine.
Only a few cars were sold so car production ceased after one year.

This believed to be an emblem from the ALLEN light car
Dimension6.5 cm x 4.5 cm

makers mark from  L.F. GRAMMES & SONS ALLENTOWN, P.A.

The ALLEN light car on a contemporary picture, no  photo of the front known to identify the emblem
