Vernier tang sight

Anyone know who made this sight?
  

If a waffle falls over on a breakfast table and no one is there to hear it, did the waffle make a sound?

  I do not, but I have an identical sight. On the underside are the stamped initials JAK then 1995 done with a scriber.

The one pictured is stamped JAK 1948. Also a JAK monogram. Lean the J and K so they lean on the A.

Are you sure of the date?

If you show me yours, I'll show you mine.

  Definitely not; quality is way too high.

He used to come and set up at the Tulsa show I bought a nice Stevens Hunters pet  sight from him that he made, years ago. He has been at the show recently too.

I've had that sight a long time and I always thought the date on it was 1948. So I figured the maker was long deceased. Got an email from schuetzenbob. Tells me Keller is making a staff for him, for a Ballard base.

J A Keller makes nice sights.

That's nice to know, and he's still with us.
