Hey Jonathan,

that’s definitely a cool Spalding pin, apparently advertising bicycles. While the paper insert doesn’t exactly match any of Whitehead & Hoag’s Type I (1896), Type II (1896), or Type III (1896-97) labeling, the pin is featured on the cover of the 1897 Whitehead & Hoag catalog. I’d assume that with the singular patent, your pin dates from earlier, most likely from between the patent date on your example, and the second patent date of April 14, 1896, with both dates appearing on the majority of later inserts.

I hope this information helps, and I apologize for the terrible photos.


Brent

Brent Thank you for the information. I have seen this same image on a lapel button but this is only pin I have seen. I wondered for a time if someone converted it from a button to a pin but your info tells me that it was a pin all along. In 1897 Spalding was selling bikes to the US military. (For fast attack troops.) so it makes sense their advertising would be strong..
regards
Jonathan

Hey Jonathan, I appreciate the PM, thanks!
And that's very interesting regarding Spalding making bikes for the US military. I was not aware of that, thanks for the info. Now I'm wondering if anyone has any photos of servicemen on Spalding bikes? If so, I'd love to see them!

This is group of Buffalo Soldiers of the 25th infantry on their bikes. I read that Spalding donated the bikes. heavy frames Goodyear tires weighed 25 pounds. They trained in Montana and in the Rockies. look them up interesting reading
