Pierce wrench

I was wondering, was this in the tool kit, or was it a dealer wrench?   Wonder if the younger guys can identify the logo?

I'm gonna guess that it was a tool kit wrench.  Dealer tools are usually a little more specialized. I'll leave the logo for others.

Check the other side of the wrench.  It's a tool kit wrench, sure, but for a Pierce Arrow auto. 

Here's a photo from Alloy Artifacts.

Pierce made bicycles and motorcycles, before they made automobiles.  Sometimes these wrenches are shown in the tool kit that came with Pierce "Arrow" model bicycles.

Pierce Arrow cars were made in Buffalo NY, as was  JH Williams. Nice to think two companys could "keep it in the family"
