hello everyone tonight

Thanks DL--I needed that input because that is my real feelings also, it no doubt is a person's name, or a company trademark, just trying to cover all possible bases

it is a nicely done Broad axe with well executed lines, and good tool steel inset lines--not made by a amateur manufacturer for sure

Well I am going to motor on with my research--might get lucky
it is hard to believe that no records exists

It doesn't appear to me that the axe is one of a kind--too well manufactured--it carries the later head style, being placed in the centre of the blade as later improved patents.
