Gustav Heine was a piano maker with an interest in automobiles. He had started to build his Heine-Velox car in 1905 but, after building a few cars, his factory and his business were destroyed by the San Francisco earthquake in 1906.
Beware, there are reproductions of this emblem, including some excellent quality reproductions, which have a false maker's mark on the back. They were made several years ago, possibly for a Heine-Velox which was being restored about that time. The Heine-Velox emblem shown above at the top of this post was used to obtain an accurate rubbing for the reproduction emblems.
