On the front around the edge is stamped THE OHIO BRASS CO.

A picture of a woman with a flower in her hair is secured behind a plastic covering.  Perhaps the number 68 is her employee ID or a department number.  On the back is stamped the number 4325.  In a triangle, the following is stamped: A.E. CO. / UTICA / N.Y.
