Markings

Stamped "A T" below a crown and over a device, within a shield having straight sides, and four crisp corners. THIS MARK IS UNLIKE THE OTHER TWO MARKS BY TYLER IN THIS STYLE that has been published anyway!. THE OTHERS HAVE MORE MOVEMENT TO THE OUTLINE OF THE SHIELD; ONE IS NARROWER, WITH CRUDER LETTERS; THE OTHER IS WIDER, WITH BROAD LETTERING.
