Herman Ulrich’s Makers Mark’s Found on both the Roosevelt 1876 and 1892 Winchester’s.

In the study of engravings over the years I have found that many people are not able to see the smaller makers marks. This find in rediscovering Hermans Ulrich’s maker marks are found on is Colt pistol engravings and on several other Winchesters documented to Herman Ulrich. What is uniques is that these marks are identical in design. Three of these marks are found on TR’s 1876 and two are clearly found on TR’s 1892.  These marks that are bold letters ” UH “and seen as “HU”! Colt’s engraver contacted Leslie Ulrich in the 1950’s and asked about Leslies fathers makers marks and Leslie said his marks were 1/16th on an inch in size. Where these are found as what appears to be scratch marks often. Except, each Ulrich had 3-4 different personalized letter makers marks and a variation of their own punch marks.
