Default Trying to ID a vintage pot

I found this exact pot at an antique shop today only it is in much better shape. I am trying to figure out what decade it is from (I would like to make sure it's vintage) and just find out more about the brand. In the bottom of mine it has a partial brand name and logo. It says "(word I cannot make out) Americana Ironware". The word I cannot make out looks as if it begins with and "O", "C", or "G" and there is also a "uin" in it. I cannot find anything online about that brand without the first word. Anyone have and idea?

Maybe Genuine Americana Ironware?

I can't find anything on the interwebs though =/

What does the logo look like? My dad (the antiques dealer) says it could be a griswold. Their logo is a cross (X) inside a circle. He says they also manufactured cast iron stuff for other companies like Sears.

Thanks guys. It's definitely not that brand. They engrave their logos into the iron. This logo is not engraved. You can only see it when the light hits it. I'm pretty sure it does say "Genuine Americana Ironware". Still can't find any info. Here are some photos of the logo. You can barely see it.







And I actually found a set. Here they are.

I just found this if you search the text I mentions that they will be selling "Genuine Americana Ironware" then goes on to mention different types of skillets, pots, and such. It's kind of jumbled. Can anyone make heads or tails of it?

Now that I am looking at it on a computer it isn't jumbled at all. It's a newspaper add for Sav-mart. That has to be it. It calls it "Genuine Americana Porcelainized Ironware" I guess that is what they are calling the enamel. Crazy, that's the only thing I can find about it at all! I have the 3 qt sauce pan with lid and 2 qt sauce pan with lid.
