At one time I knew, but I don't now and my Google Fu is weak...

I think that is a Council Tool mark.  I have seen it in print with a red wedge into the C.

Thanks.  That's what it is.  In about 1983 I bought a "Cedar axe" (double bit).  We didn't have any cedar trees in out end of Texas but there was plenty of other stuff to cut with a small, light double bit axe.  I carried it in my tool box for a lot of years and just recently transferred it to the shop wall.  It's a good little axe and keeps an edge if I can keep it out of the dirt when I use it. 

About two years ago I broke the handle and finally found one at a "Mom and Pop" hardware store.  I hung it but didn't do a very good job of it.  I took the handle off of it the other day, sanded all the varnish off of it and re-hung it properly finished with boiled linseed oil.  I the course of doing that I cleaned up the head with a wire wheel and found the makers mark. 

Thanks again for the info.
