Last year, at the Chicago Pen Show, I was able to obtain yet another OS Balance pen.  This one has a shield emblem of unknown origin or meaning.  I even took this pen to its "home" in Fort Madison, IA with no other information other than "yeah, we did that to pens".

Anyone?  Anyone?

Well it sorta resembles Oldsmobile heraldry; 3 acorns, a spur, and 2 micrometers.

The grill emblem from a '41 Olds is an even closer match:

I think you found a winner!

I'm happy to have 3 good car-related pens, but I'm confident there were others for other manufacturers. The only question is, where are they?
