Hi, my name is*****'m a certified appraiser, and I'd be happy to help.In order to value this item, I'll need to see an overall photo and a close-up of the markings. The markings you are giving me don't come up in any databases, but seeing them may help me to interpret them.Please let me know if you need assistance with photo upload.Sincerely,Jennifer

I'm still trying to send you a picture. We were at an event this last weekend, there were Civil War collectors there and two of tem said the same thing, they think it is the manufacturer. It's frustrating!
