We all know that there are still numerous undocumented parts transfers from one company to another to keep the lines running. So an oddball part in an otherwise all correct carbine is entirely possible and possibly correct/original. That's why we say, don't be in a hurry to change a single seemingly incorrect part. It might just be original.

Yes, and I'm going to lay a few more examples of what I've encountered in my carbine collecting adventures. Stay tuned!

Cleaning up the workbench and was delighted to notice the Seymour Smith & Son logo on the spokeshave's blade.

Facilities still extant and apparently available.

J. L. Clark
from their current website (2022)
Perhaps their best known product today?

One of their first lithographed tinned cans


And a fairly obscure one with their logo on the the bottom.

That's great Jim.  If I came across that coop, doubt I'd figure out it was intended for human babies sun tan!

Broken link above in the J.L.Clark post should show Altoid boxes from Clark's current website.  https://jlclark.com/

Here's a 1962 newspaper clipping with a history of the Clark's beginings.

and a 1917 view of their Rockford Ill. building

Sorry. I don't. :(
I just tried looking through the waybackmachine for JL Clark but not finding it.
