Maker's Mark on Axe

Recommended Posts


I recently excavated an old ax and when cleaned I found it had a maker's mark on the side.  There are three, all the same and they look to be the letters I and O.  Does anyone have any sources on ax maker's marks?  Considering where this ax was found, I'm thinking it dates to the early 17th century but would like to ID it by the marks.  Is this possible?
