What does this logo mean? Is it a brand? If so, which one?

Asked by peedub (8698points) July 9th, 2009

It’s the circle with a capitol ‘A’ in it, at the bottom-right. I’m trying to figure out what kind of (vintage) cowboy boots these are. For all I know, it could be alluding to a type of material used.

I AM DEFINITELY NOT TALKING ABOUT THE ANARCHY SYMBOL. These boots are from the 1950’s/1960’s. The symbol is a marking made by the manufacturer.

Circle A is typically associated with anarchy.

@The_Compassionate_Heretic Yeah, that was actually my first thought too. Did it look like this?

this? yeah it’s the anarchy symbol

@The_Compassionate_Heretic I’m familiar with that. This is something completely different.
It’s a brand [as in marking] the company used. The boots are from the 1950’s or 1960’s.

After seeing the link, it’s probably a manufacturer’s brand of some sort. There’s likely little meaning aside from that.

Oh. Like that. Usually associated with anarchy, but yeah, that’s different. Seems like a brand logo.

It could be an internal company symbol for something, like the type or grade of leather used or which market the boots were meant for.

That was used by the Acme boot company, at least through the ‘70’s.

Acme boots? You mean the company which made Acme Anvils to be used in situations such as this to kill pesky roadrunners?
