This a partial photo I found on eBay.  The caption tells an interesting story.

That is why both brass logo's are on the car today.

Here's the whole photo, from the "All About Lynne" booklet the Monon gave out to visitors around 1955, with its caption.

A builder at Pullman marked at least one of the cabinet doors in a bedroom "Great Spirit" now the "Lynne". He used a nail set and hammer writing the name as a series of dots on the edge of the door where it can not be easily seen. My wife found it when cleaning the "Lynne" a couple of years ago.
