I picked these up at an Estate Auction. I cannot find anything on the web.
On the chisel it says “Made in France, High alloy chrome steel” m◊b
Any help would be appreciated. Quality? Manufacturer?

I poked around and found “Moulson Brothers” plane irons and chisles. But they went out of business in 1912, maybe someone bought the rights to their name. Or am I may be way off too…

Merged with Peddinghaus a while back

They should be drop forged if Mob made them, pretty reasonable make.

Who would have known that the diamond shape was an “O”. I always have such great results with the Lumberjocks community. You guys are great. Thanks
