I went to a gunshow last week, and for the first time, I found what I was looking for, Thompson and M14 mags. Three of the Thompson mags are Seymores (spelling?) but the fourth mag isn't marked with an actual name. The "unknown" mag is almost identical to the other three except for a few subtle differences. On the fourth mag is stamped: U.S.-30 cartridges .45 cal. Underneath that is a long, oval shaped letter "C" and within the C is a capital "CO." Any ideas? Colt? The Large oval shaped "C" reminds me of Colt markings I've seen before.

It's a Crosby Company magazine. Interesting article about them,. pp. 179-180 in Frank's American Thunder.

Gotcha, thanks Chris. If I had been thinking I would have checked my copy of the "Bible" before I posted.
