    C.M. McClung Co. was a wholesale hardware business founded in 1884. The quality of the axe would depend on who made it for McClung.

    well i cant find much, but it seems that they are quite rare and old... and that they were a wholesaler and not a manufacturer.
    this might help you out some;

    C.M. McClung Co
    anybody have an idea who made axe's for this hardware company?

    one thing very confusing is , most tools like axes, pliers, tongs,scissors and almost everything else etc; were or are made by companies
    specializing in the manufacture there of...
    the distributors , wholesalers, jobbers and brick and mortar stores, hardware stores only sold the products.
    Sears & Roebuck, Montgomery Ward,Gambles, J.C. Penny, Keen Kutter,Simmons, Western Auto,Wyeth and hundreds of others mostly marketed products made by manufacturers.
    i don't know why i'm writing this?
    Wyeth did actually build wagons in St. Joseph .Missouri. the wagon parts were purchased from suppliers
    anybody got any tools with a Wyeth stamp?
    Sears doesn't make wash machines!@%$#!

    well anyway, i apologize

    If I was a betting man, I would say Kelly might of made it. Proximity, and their history with Belknap also nearby, makes sense. Though the stamping on that, the "N"s in tenn look just like the "N"s in MANN........not sure if that means anything at all.
