American Lock logo history

Does anyone know the history behind the American lock company's logo? I would like to know the logo order, and what years each logo was used. Knowing that would help identify what year the padlocks were produced. I'm assuming the photo below is the correct order, but I have no clue the years each was used.

Below is a tidbit of history about the company from their website

Each lock will have a date code on the back.

Re: American Lock logo history

Here are five different logos from my collection. Did not notate the dates. But am curious as to when the different logos and stampings occurred.

Re: American Lock logo history

Thanks Jharvee, I never knew what those codes were

It looks like the logo slowly evolved later on to remove the letters USA, probably because they quit producing them here

Re: American Lock logo history

You may enjoy these even older American Lock padlocks which still had the company founder's name, Junkunc, on them.

That's really great. I had never seen one with Junkunc and American on it, only one or the other
