I can't read the inscription on the back of this small pin. Enlarging doesn't help me. Can anyone else make it out?

I would suggest you use a strong magnifying glass and look at it with the light cming from a variety of angles. That said, it looks like the top word is "motor."

You're absolutely right that does say motor. Somehow the shape of that thing reminds me of a sign. I looked at a bunch of vintage automobile oriented signs on Amazon and didn't see it.


Good people don't lie.

That's the classic Harley Davidson bar & shield logo on the top portion as shown here. Not sure what's written in addition below it.

Interesting....other copies of that same pin doesn't have anything inscribed on the back.

Eagle Claw HD pin

I can see a vague outline, but it may have been worn off.

Try a rubbing with a pencil and paper. It may make something stand out.

I can see the same form on the back of that pin. Well worn, but it's there.

This is probably the closest to what is on my pin. A photo of another similar one online.
