OK, here is what mine looks like. Has a patent date in place of the ‘New Britain Conn’ and ‘USA’ lines. I looked at the rexmill site, but didn’t see an example that looked like that.

Also, the handles are black underneath. I worked a small spot, and it seems to stay black. I could do more I suppose. Did they ever make handles from bakelite or anything like that? I suppose it could be a later black painted handle that was painted over red, and I just didn’t scrape hard enough to get to bare wood.
