Signed by company president Barney Everitt at bottom right. Fine-VF condition, ABNC. Rickenbacker Motor Company was a US automobile manufacturer located in Detroit, Michigan, from 1922 until 1927. The company was established by Barney Everitt, who asked World War I veteran and Congressional Medal of Honor recipient Eddie Rickenbacker for the use of his name. Everitt was one of the founders of the earlier car company, E-M-F Company, along with Walter Flanders who was also involved in the Rickenbacker Company. Eddie Rickenbacker was named Vice President and Director of Sales. In 1922 the first Rickenbacker touring cars, sedans, and coupes made their debut at the New York Auto Show. Although the company continued to release new cars from then on, sales continued to be poor. Rickenbacker resigned from the company in 1926, which proved to be the downfall of the company in 1927. The manufacturing equipment was sold to Audi and transported to Germany, with some Audi Zwickau and Dresden models using six- or eight-cylinder Rickenbacker engines. Some Rickenbacker cars still survive today. This Certificate was issued the year before the company declared bankruptcy, and features founder Barney Everitt’s signature. Byron Forbes “Barney” Everitt was born in 1873 at Ridgetown, Ontario, and learned wagon-building in Chatham, Ontario. In the early 1890s he worked for carriage-maker Hugh Johnson in Detroit.
