Support BladeForums! Paid memberships don't see ads! Hello! I'm a prior lurker and a present collector of miner's tools, specifically picks. I've recently come across an interesting pick that is stamped with an H inside of a shield as well as WASHOE on the reverse side. From the research I've done, it seems that this pick was manufactured by Hubbard & Co. I'm unable to find any documentation stating that Hubbard had a Washoe brand, but I know that at least a few other companies did: Washoe Mfg Co, Lathrop & Co, and J. Wright Extra. Anyway, if you can offer any insight, I would be most appreciative. Also, I have no clue as to its potential age. Thank you for taking the time to read this and for your help. Thanks!!
