    I think the stamp is similar to this other example, which says:

    GERMANTOWN [top line, curved]
    TOOL WORKS [second line, straight]
    SOLID CAST STEEL [third line, curved]

    Looking at your example, it seems likely that you are correct. I could not find a Germantown Tool Works logo with the curves. Nor, could I convince myself that the top line on my Hatchet matched up with the letters of Germantown. The first line on my Hatchet is very faint. I'll have to look at it more closely now that I know Germantown used a curved logo. The only Germantown logos I could find were straight or abbreviated. Thanks so much for the input, T- A
