Default markings on kettle

I purchased this kettle because it has a lot of character.Casting is not perfect, but it seems old looks as if bail is hand made. There is a marking on the outside was wondering if any one has seen this and if possible maybe a guess at its age :confuse

I have a similar pot which I bought from a dealer on line. Mine is dated pre 1776. I will post a picture when I get home so you can compare

You have a great pot which might not take too much heat. Careful Most of that time are collector pieces.

Kettle worked beautiful over the weekend low fire we cooked soup in it
I do cherish it for its age and character the cub scouts loved it and it still continues to serve us people well
