Default Easter hunt yields an early US automobile badge

Absolutely perfect weather in N. TX for Easter.
Found a strange one for me.

Found a Premier Motors radiator badge. A somewhat obscure early US auto manufacturer that used this badge from 1915 to 1923. Apparently from a little research, this is considered a scarce badge.

Still need to pick some more dirt from it but the design can be seen.
Thanks to my hunting partner for making an in-field ID.

Nice find - here's an ad from around 1910 when they used air-cooled engines.
