DINOS / BERLIN / GERMANY  ( 1921 - 1924 )

The DINOS Automobilwerke of Berlin / Germany was a short lived company ( 1921 - 1924).
The company was a reoganisation of  the Loeb - Werke AG situated in Berlin - Charlottenburg.
They offered two cars. The one with a 2.1 litre four-cylinder engine and the other with a 4 litre six-cylinder, both engines were designed by Joseph Vollmer, a well known engineer who worked for GAGGENAU, SKODA, NAG and other.  In four years DINOS built about 400 cars so every emblem is a rarity.

DINOS emblem. The holes are original. The wings are slightly curved.

Size15.2 cm x 6.5 cm
Year1921 - 1924

I found a futuristic advertisment, published in 1921 to 1924:
