This emblem was offered as a separate item for "Metz Plan" cars and could be placed anywhere on the car. The same emblem was fixed to the top center of the false radiator on two-cylinder cars assembled in the Metz factory in 1910 and 1911.
The Metz four-cylinder Model 22 introduced in 1912 carried a smaller but otherwise identical emblem, see example below. This emblem was located on the wooden frame under the seat.

A Metz Model 22 advertisement from September 1911 shows the name "METZ" on the radiator tank top, see below, but this may be artist's license as I have found no evidence that this was actually used on a Metz car.
