We have this mandolin in our shop and are having trouble identifying it. The craftsmanship is excellent and it plays and sounds great. The tailpiece is stamped with a Patent date of 94 (1894). The back of the headstock is stamped NO. 90. The leather case has a logo on it that has a circle that is segmented into three parts (like an inverted Mercedes Benz logo) and says either LHC or HLC and "Trade Mark" around it. Any opinions or insights would be greatly appreciated.
