I have a couple of old tools that are old, looking to me to be around WWI period.
Both have no makers’ mark, but both are stamped “Foreign”.
I read somewhere (can’t remember where) that this means the tools were made in Germany (I’m in the UK), and would date just after WWI. The “Foreign” mark being used in place of “Made in Germany”, which would not have been popular in the UK at that time.
Does anyone know if this is true, or the real origin of the mark?
