I've been searching on line but haven't found anything. Anyone ever see this style before?

I'm pretty sure I've seen that on guitars before, but not ukes. Pretty cool!

Have you searched Antebellum?

Same logo I think, on a '65 guitar.

Wonder if it was for school systems?

Ukenomics has a similar one that looks to be more of a gold lettering http://ukeonomics.blogspot.com/2012/08/vintage-harmony-ukulele-repair-project.html

My Harmony has the green sticker with white painted sound hole and white bindings.

Your headstock logo looks nicer - does yours have the white sound hole/bindings or is it plain like in the Ukenomics photo?

I've seen the treble clef decal on Harmony's but not the 16th note. I dug around Antebellum last night and didn't see anything.

I has a simple inlay around the soundhole exactly like my Silvertone's. Yes, I'm aware that Harmony made Silvertone. There's also an odd discoloration on the fretboard which I have to take a picture of and post on the luthier section.

Ah, I didn't really even consider the 16th note. I meant that I don't think I've ever seen one where the "Harmony" script stood alone (on a uke anyway). Every one I can think of has the script on some sort of field or shield.
