Which shocked me a bit. So I tried to look it up. Looking up Swastika Coal and Coke gets you an article on Wikipedia that covers the use of the swastika symbol in the west prior to the Nazi’s use of it. That article does not mention the specific company but is interesting. I also found this:

Swastika Fuel Co thermometer

On auction at Artfact.com which seems to be a different model of the same thing. Several other things came up from the same Swastika Fuel company of Raton, NM.
