    I've seen photos of the oval-shaped AT&N logo on various equipment as well as the B/Y FRISCO scheme with AT&N sub-lettering on RS-1's, but there are two other logos that I've seen online (http://frisco.demopolis.ws/atn.htm), a Frisco coonskin and some other type of cookskin-ish looking thing (both with AT&N lettering on them) that I haven't seen in photos? Were those two logos ever really used (if so, are there any photos available), or are they merely figments of someone's imagination? The Redstone MRR Club in Huntsville, AL (http://www.rmrrc.net/) uses the AT&N/Coonskin logo but that still leaves me wondering if they were ever used by the AT&N/Frisco. - Brandon

    The only AT&N coonskin logo I've seen in any "quasi-official" capacity is the one in your avatar. Not to say the others didn't exist but I've never seen photographic evidence of it. The version in your avatar was spotted on an old business card that contained three coonskin logos... Frisco, Quanah and AT&N. I think I saved a picture of it but it may be residing on the hard drive of a dead computer. A quick scan of ebay, which is where I saw it, reveals a closed auction with one of these cards. [​IMG]

    Did a quick search on ebay - here's a variant of an AT&N coonskin - steam era:

    One more... as you can see, eBay can sometimes be a treasure trove for researchers:
