Original champleve Mercedes Benz radiator emblem in good condition. The piece measures 2 5/16 in. in diameter and is slightly V-shaped. The rear attachment bolt is present and I believe this piece dates from the 50's or 60's. The blue glass is chipped and there is a rear marking of "108".
I have recently finished the second volume of my book on automobile emblems and collecting and am presently looking for publisher for both volumes. Therefore I have decided to thin my collection of emblems, brass script and engine/body plates by at least 300-400. I am the same person (loboblanco) who sold emblems from Santa Monica in southern California. I have recently retired and moved to farming country in Ontario in Canada, with the result that my shipping costs have increased. I take great care to describe my items carefully. Please check the pictures and email me with any questions. If for any reason you are dissatisfied, I will refund the moneys sent minus the shipping and ebay costs upon return of the item in the same condition as sent. Payment must be received within 5 days of auction's close unless other arrangements are agreed upon by buyer and myself. Contact me if other payment arrangements preferable. I will combine multiple purchases into one shipping charge. Please contact me after the sale for the combined shipping charge.
