Would anyone know roughly what time period Lyman used lower case lettering on their front sights as in this picture (Lyman) rather than all caps (LYMAN) as I have on others. On this sight in the very small print it looks like it says REG US PAT OFF. Without measuring the bead, I believe this sight is a No. 31 or No. 37 Semi-Jack. I know that the style of sight was available sometime around or after 1900. Just curious on the markings and time period.

I looked through my Stroebel book–looks like you did too–and I couldnt find anything else. If you come across any other sight reference material please forward the reference. If you think the sights are original to the rifle, you have the date of production of the rifle(s) to go by at this point, maybe contrast with other DOM for rifles with that type of sight but with LYMAN in all caps.
