I am looking for the company that produced several scopes during the WW era. It is a company based in Japan that produced scopes for A.S.I., Webley, Armsport, & Sussex Armoury to name a few.
 
All the scopes have this same Stamp on them
 
Can anyone help Identify this logo and the company that made these scopes?

                          Thinking      I have seen that symbol on lots of old Japanese scopes from the sixties and seventies ( usually on the ocular eyepiece) but the scopes were all branded different names.  I couldn't tell you who the manufacturer was.   Shocked

I know the A.S.I. scope had this stamp. Does anyone know that A.S.I. stands for?

Rumor has it that ASI means Anglo Spanish Imports.
 
is the stamp from Hakko?
