52-55 Horn emblem
Like the front emblem the horn emblem black and white checkers area there is more of the black then white in a ORIGINAL horn emblem . Because you would rarely ever see a original emblem to day , the repro. Are thought to be the original ones. Some judges may even take points off for the original one thinking it was a second.

I see that many people look at my weblog , I would like to hear from any one that thinks I'm wrong ,right,or has other examples ,interest. Option,remarks and what ever.
The parts I post are to inform people of the originality of parts and interest of accessories GM offered to use, I find few people interested about accessories until they see my 55 Corvette and ask what the thing it is or does.
