The flying-S badge with horizontal bolts is the rear badge. The grille badge has the diagonal bolts

Yes these came on Japan-market 1972 coupes, all coupes including DX, GL, and GX


the rear badge is distinguished by scalloped fluting on the edge of the circle part. The grille badge has a smooth chrome finish

If the black paint is worn off...
Open in new window


...examine it for the scalloped sections

Also if i recall correctly the rear badge is nearly flat, while the grille badge has a V-shape to match the grille angle

I don't have badges any more as i sold or gave away when i moved. Carried only two suitcases on the plane. Sometimes I think about my old 1200s but really need aircon here

Do we need pics of the sedan "S" badge for the wiki?
Can always use more pics. Have a few at sedan badges grille center ornament but notably missing how it actually bolts to the grille

Using reply/upload many pics ... is easier than adding a pic one at a time to the Photo Album. The only "trick" is making the photo less than 200,000 bytes as most all phones make larger files than that. Most 1024x768 photos are under 200k bytes. I still use the old free "STGThumb" program to resize photos because the resizer built into Windows makes files too big

1024x768 photo from STGthumb or Resize Me: 150KB size
1024x768 photo from Windows Photos: 225KB file size
