The 3 words following"Pierce" are most likely "Tried And True", an inseperable part of the Pierce name.It also appears that way on the headbadge.The presence of the Arrow symbol suggests an early teens date,as well as the use of decals, tying the bike to the popular Pierce Arrow auto. The early bikes were only known as "Pierce".Art Link,San Antonio,TX,USA

I'm in the process of restoring an early pierce (Angola, New York) It is a maroon color with double plate fork crown (nickel plated). The only transfers I can make out are on the top tube that read pierce with the arrow. There is a round transfer on the down tube up near the head tube that reads pierce and three other words I can't make out. There may also be transfers on it that I'm not aware of, although I do see what appears to be gold box lining. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks Brian Jackson Lakeside,CA
