I recently bought this one on eBay, listed as sand-casted. It had been painted copper, and then gold. I spent a good 8-9 hours over the course of the past 2 weeks with Q-Tips and nail polish removing, a whole lot of elbow grease to get the paint out of the stipling...I'd say 98% has been removed. Turned out to be a gorgeous emblem that went overlooked!

This style was used from 1937 into the 50s.

Can't really place a value on trenched emblems. Vary piece by piece since they are unique. Some bring low amounts, some high.
