The Schacht Manufacturing Company was a well established buggy builder when in 1904 it produced a 10 hp two-cylinder runabout. In 1905 a 30 hp four-cylinder was added to the line. A two-cylinder high wheel runabout was offered in 1907 and high wheelers only were offered from 1908 to 1910. The Schacht company slogan was the "Invincible Schacht". The company was renamed as the Schacht Motor Car Company in 1909 and a line of more conventional four-cylinder cars was offered from 1910 together with a range of trucks until 1913 when passenger car production ceased.
The earliest Schacht runabouts and touring models did not carry a radiator emblem or a radiator script but did display the Schacht name on a small brass maker's nameplate attached to the side of the vehicle, see example below. This Schacht maker's nameplate is very rare.

A brass "Schacht" script was displayed on the radiator core of Schacht vehicles certainly by 1909 but probably by about 1907, although I cannot confirm this date., see example below. Original Schacht radiator scripts are rare.

Schacht passenger cars carried a red, white and orange enamel radiator emblem from about 1911 or 1912 until passenger car production ceased in 1913, see example shown above at the top of this post. This Schacht passenger car radiator emblem is extremely rare. I cannot confirm the exact start date for this radiator emblem but surviving Schacht cars from 1910 do not appear to have had a radiator emblem.

The following photo shows the embossed "Schacht" name on the radiator tank top of a Schacht truck from the late 1920's:

From about 1930. LeBlond-Schacht trucks carried a new red, white and blue enamel radiator emblem, see example below. This Schacht truck radiator emblem is scarce and is often, incorrectly, believed to be a Schacht passenger car radiator emblem.
