Default Unknown markings

Hi All,
Picked up a project lifter hammer gun the other day and upon removing 136 years of grime on the barrel flats I found the T with umbrella stamp...the 4 pd. 6 oz. barrel wt. stamp...and the following letters " A L E " to the left of the weight stamps. I do not think they are Remington repair codes since they appear to be of the same vintage as the other stamps. Can anyone shed some light on these markings ? I think I'll call this my BEER gun (get it).
Thanks for your help,
Austin

The T would be for twist steel.

Without seeing a pic of the other markings, i cannot say. It does not sound like anything commonly found on thise guns. Are those markings anywhere else on the gun?

Nowhere else that I can see. I've only owned 4-5 other lifters and do not recall seeing any similar letters on those guns. I'll see if I can get my wife to help me post photos.
