Any of you guys know roughly when Lyman began stamping Lyman Middlefield, Conn. on the top of their tang peeps. The early ones were unmarked as far as I know, just wondering when they changed?

I think this is the same marking you are talking about discussed here.  Maybe someone else can narrow down the dates.

Yeah, those are the markings I’m referring to. I figured some of the sight collectors might know when the sights started being marked Lyman Middlefield Conn. on top. The sight I’m asking about is actually for a Savage 99 but I figured the marking change would’ve been across the whole line of tang sights.

I have a high condition 99H takedown with two leaf folding sight on the barrel and found a minty Lyman to mount on it. It has a high polish which leads me to believe it is older production but it also has the marking mentioned. My T/D is a 1914 gun and I wanted a period correct sight on it. Thanks for the reply.

I put one on this 1899H from 1915, a Lyman No.1A.  This one is unmarked, but it would not surprise me if there were sights with the tang markings by then.  I just don’t know exactly when they changed or maybe there was a transition period.  I’m not overly concerned about it on this rifle personally but I can see someone wanting to get the correctly marked one.

Just being fussy, I guess. Your sight looks good and the finish matches the rifle. That is more important.
