Mine also has a marking on the on the tab but it does not show well in the first photo. mine appears to read "GM" inside two circles. Here is a fresh photo of the logo.

Tom -

Do you think yours could be stamped "SM" as in Richard's photo above?  SM = Stant Manufacturing.     :)

Paul,

Not positive, but it looks like "GM" to me. It also appears to have two circles stamped around it instead of one like in the "SM" stamp shown on Richards cap. There is not enough to be positive what was stamped. The rivet does have the large "S" like the other caps.

That's actually "SM", with the horizontal line missing. The "S" on the center rivet was on all Stant caps, and the "SM" logo is for Stant Manufacturing.
