Oldest "G. Daimler" Windshield sticker

Hello all,

From what I've seen, Mercedes-Benz has been putting the various signature stickers ("A Daimler Benz Product", "A Mercedes Benz Product", that horrible "Mercedes" one, ect.) in the bottom of the passenger side of the US windshields since the late 70's.

I recently saw an old ad from Nov 1970 that stated they were putting the stickers on cars then. I have never seen one of these stickers on a W113, W108/9, W100, or W114/5. I was wondering if anyone else has, and would maybe have a picture to share?

Seeing as the "A Daimler Benz Product" ones changed to "A Mercedes-Benz Product" around 1992-ish, I'd assume it would have the former on the windshield.

Thanks for any and all input, have a great weekend.

I don't think it would be a good idea for me to create a signature. It would probably just be some shameless plug about me being a Realtor.

On the off chance you have no clue what I'm talking about, here's the one from my '87. It's seen better days, didn't really start to look like that until my ex-mechanic left the car outside for almost a month in the summer. The one on my 2000 is the "A Mercedes-Benz Product" one.

My two M-B's have one each of the two versions of the sticker that you mention. If nobody comes up with a pic of just Gottlieb Daimler's signature, I found that version using this search which you'll have to cut and paste as it's not a direct link:

history of Gottlieb Daimler signature on Mercedes Benz windshields

Hope that helps!

In 1972 when they built my 280 SE 4.5, Mercedes-Benz did not need any silly windshield sticker to convince the world of its quality. Times certainly have changed.

... So what you're saying is, that you car did not have the sticker on it when you bought it new?

I don't think it would be a good idea for me to create a signature. It would probably just be some shameless plug about me being a Realtor.

Yes, there's a slightly different version of the sticker on each car's windshield.

Any updates from everyone? I called MB Classic to order a replacement for mine, and the guy told me it was a W115 part number. So at least those models should have one.

Share a pic of the one on your Benz!

Correct, and that Mercedes-Benz quality has declined drastically since its early 1970s peak.

Thank you for the answer.

This is the only one I've seen in a car from that era, and it's hard to tell if it's OEM or not.
