    Default Harley Davidson Humidor

    I've had this sitting on a self for over 25 years. I bought it at an estate sale in Ohio. The cap with the HD logo appears to be a one piece affair and not just a HD badge attached to it. There is nothing else on it that would suggest it's motorcycle related. It's brass colored tin with a 3 sailing ships design in black (Columbus' ships?) on one side. Has anyone seen one of these before?

    I say homemade. The emblem (even the remaining color) is exactly like the reproduction watch fobs sold in the '70s.

    The R in Harley says Willie G Design..the paint outside the lines says crap.

    Yeah, it's homemade. A closer inspection shows that the HD logo is glued to the cap. I had to pry up on an end a bit with a fine pick but it eventually started to come up. It seemed unlikely that it was an original HD piece but at least it became a conversation piece between a few of us.

    What do you think the Bar and Shield came from? Don't discount that the humidor in itself isn't a unique value. Did you say it was plated?
