EIG - FIE replica manufacturer

I know I'm very late getting to this conversation, but I thought I would post this for the benefit of anyone who comes along later:

The best information that I've been able to dig up indicates that this logo is "LGB" and stands for Luciano Giacosa of Brescia, Italy. My father had two EIG replicas, an 1851 Colt .36 Navy that he bought in 1966, and a Colt 1849 .31 caliber that he bought in 1967. I don't know whether these had the LGB logo on them, as he engraved over any markings on the frame of the 1851 (which is the only one that I have in my possession).
