The piece that I have has been a bit of a puzzle to me. After, many years of research, I finally came upon your website. Knowing that there are many fakes/copies & reproductions of McCoy's pieces. With all hopes you maybe able to solve this for me. I have attached two photos below. One of the actual piece & one of the trademark. There is a number signature below the trademark: '740'. Thank you for any information that you maybe be able to provide. ?

Answer:

Hi,! Your Turtle Planter is a Genuine McCoy and was made in 1975. the 740 was the catalog number of the item and the LLC part of the logo was when McCoy was a part of the Lancaster Colony Corporation. It is a fun planter to have!
