Crown Magnetic Emblem

I'm looking for information on this emblem and the car it represented. The Standard Catalog of American Cars says it was a 1920 export version of the Owen Magnetic, another source says it was sold in the US under that name after OM disappeared in 1921. No photos or other info have come up. The emblem is 1 5/8" by 2 13/16 with translucent red and white enamel, any information is appreciated.

The badge seems too modern looking for the period. Apparently there was an order for 500 cars in 1920 but Owen Magnetic went into receivership before any cars were delivered. The was one car on display at the 1920 London Motor Show. I doubt any others were built.
