Is only marked N.
I saw in the books that Inland did have T4 flip safeties late in production but the only codes shown were HI and EI. 
I searched the NLs and couldn't find this mark. There is not another mark on the side of the flipper.
Does anyone know what the N. is?
Thanks

I believe it to be Neider. Do not hold me to it as I cannot find the notes with that info.
Anyone else?

There is a N. listed for rotary safeties on the parts marking chart in CCNL 2 down the "other" column. Coming up empty with my resources trying to find out for sure who made it.

Wayne, I see that. Thanks.
Shown with the N. is a 'double S'. Does that mean the two stamps should appear together on the same safety? Mine does not have the 'double S' stamp.

The SS is W.M. Steinen. it is a transfer between the two subcontractors.

Since N. is Neider, and SS is Steiner, I would not expect to see both marks on the same flip safety....right?
