Apodaca Bros. started using this oval text stamp in 1976. Early examples are rare; I have dates going back to 1967 and up to 2005.

After 12 years of intensive searching, this is the first sidewalk stamp I’ve ever found stamped with a 1978 date.

Marks by this maker are very scarce in Oakland; I’ve found only a handful. This one takes the firm’s history back another year.
