Has anyone seen a type 3 band with this marking before? Looks like a serif C?

Interesting it does have the same front profile as a Cowles band. Was it a post ww2 variety?

CCNL 356, serif C in company logo reported by Marcus Rust.
The C is on the right side (as shown) as opposed the normal left side

Yes sure does look like the serif C in the C. Cowles Co. logo.
Pulled these pictures of a bore sight they manufactured, as well the factory.
