Well, unusual to my knowledge, anyway.

Salvaging some hinges earlier this week

First one gave up some Stanley love

Logo difficult to make out (even more difficult to photograph), but it says “STANLEY WORKS MADE IN USA” all inside that heart.

Did some clean up for a better pic:

Not important or even tremendously interesting (except for me, of course), but it put a smile into a menial task. Now t find a project to use them on!

That’s a cool logo. I don’t think I’ve seen one like it.

Four hinges total, Duck. Yep, logos are stamped on the underside of each of them.

If you haven’t seen it before, Yoda, that’s a big deal! Thanks.

I haven’t seen that one either, that’s neat. It was like when I found partial SW logos on the washers under the frog screws for my #7
