Sansome - Trademark law is crazy in the US. I know enough about it to be dangerous and I don't practice in that area of law at all, but from what I recall from law school that trademark would have been protected in all 50 states.

The problem is that trademarks aren't self-enforcing, meaning someone can use it in another state for the exact same product without repercussion unless you sue them and stop them. 

At that time, I would bet there was plenty of inadvertent trademark overlap for common names, initials, and words, but the lack of real competition from an out of state competitor meant no one ever enforced the trademarks outside of their usual sales territory.

Thanks ray for that explanation of the law- now I wonder if that would include territories too?

late 1880's early 90's check jacket, this one's from- the 2 miners collection we found a few years back. It's hard to see, this one's a double pleated- 1 pocket.
In 2015- we found a brown check jacket, with no pleats.
