Default Strange marking on upper receiver

I bought this upper under the impression it was a Bushmaster, but it doesn't have the same marking on it as a Bushmaster. Has anyone seen this marking on a upper, and if so, who would have made it?? Thanks

@ Purehavoc, Wow, thanks. I'm going to save this chart. That's awesome. I'm going to do some research and see what companies use Anchor Harvey. I just wanted to make sure I didn't buy a upper made in China or something. I appreciate the help.

Fulton Armory puts an "A" on their uppers. Not the same, but close.

theres not one specific forgery for a company either I have seen Colts with the keyhole and the broken A like yours , I think they buy them where their available so long as they meet their standards

So I can be confident in the upper, considering if good companies out there use Anchor Harvey and I don't have to be worried that it's some Chinese knockoff?
