Magasin du Nord Uniform Button

Gentlemen, 
There is no limit to the amazing variety of automobile buttons from the early 20th century. ​ Mysteries about them are limitless 
​as well.
 This early uniform button is was made for Magasin du Nord as the back mark indicates
​.​ This historic Danish department store dates from 1868 to the present day.

The mystery herein is the vehicle depicted on the button. Much searching on my part resulted in naught. I have no idea as to the identity of the vehicle, the year or why is it depicted on this button. Did it grace the uniform of the operator who drove this vehicle for Magasin du Nord
​? ​Was it a massive automotive shuttle for the store? Truly any assistance with its 
history or photographs is most welcomed. Many thanks.

Hope to see you all again in Hershey PA

Arab CarsHaving been the owner of the Arab registered UW 2 I am now trying to trace the history of all the Arab cars made. The picture attached is of UW 2 which is now owned in Austria, but the details attached show what I know of all the cars. If anyone could fill in any of the missing details I would be very grateful.
Kind regards,
David Barker

My pre-war cars

My pre-war cars
1937 Hudson Custom 8, 1930 Ford standard roadster, 1938 Chevrolet Town Sedan, 1941 Cadillac series 63, 1941 Oldsmobile 76 series club sedan

All are perhaps high #3 condition cars, and all but the Cadillac have had some level of restoration.  The Cadillac shows virtually no wear after 41k miles.

All are regularly driven, maintained and enjoyed.  Other cars in the collection and the shop I built to house them may be seen here:

My wife and I live in the upper midwest, but none of the cars have any rust or rust repairs whatsoever.  

Cheers, Chris Rewey
