Default checkmate logo

anybody got a close up pic of the Checkmate logo that was used in the late eighties, the one on the sides? I have a super super clean 25 Convincor in my shop for some repair and i would like to reproduce the original logo. Thanks all

thanks MM, we ended up going with the newer one. I made this one up in CorelDraw. I actually like the older one to but like the chess piece they use now.
