Missing Details on 2-Cycle Hit and Miss Engine

Unknown Cycle Front 

I have been collecting and restoring antique engines since the early ‘70s. Recently at an estate auction I purchased the very small 2-cycle hit-and-miss engine pictured here. I’ve restored it, and it runs very well. The information plate shown has no information on it, but shows a place for TYPE, RPM, HP and MFG BY with the name ground off. Does anyone out there in engine land have one like it, or can anyone give me the manufacturer name and associated information related to the engine? I will greatly appreciate it.
