Usually there is a maker's mark or initials stamped into it somewhere. The abbreviations can be very tiny, you may have to clean the brass to detect it.

I looked in the book Tool Collector's Guide and some of those types of rules have the company name somewhere on the rule section and not the swivel.

Of course, it's possible the stamped mark is under the bandaged area.
