I will be listing on ebay soon a name plate for a Liberty Cycle. This emblem is most unique as it has never been mounted on a bicycle because it is from my late great-grandfathers collection...he worked for herff jones in Indianapolsi that manufactured these emblems

Hi Julie.......Maybe you can help me find some web pages to find information on my bike. I have a Liberty Sting-Ray from about 63 or 64. Would you happen to know how I could check out the serial number and maybe obtain the value. It's in fair shape and could very easily be restored. Any help with this would greatly be appreciated.
