By default Logo API will always serve a placeholder image for those that don’t exist. If you would rather have the endpoint return a 404 when the resource does not exist you can use the placeholder query parameter.

curl --location --request GET 'https://data.alpaca.markets/v1beta1/logos/ABCD?placeholder=false'
