Ok so I talk to some of the big name bolt suppliers. They tell me the letters "THE" are the manufactur's stamp, but the suppliers cannot tell me the company that makes the bolt, even though they sell the brand. Apparenly the manufacutere is located in either sout Korea or Tawain.

The bolt business seems like kind of a funny thing. You buy a bolt but not really sure who made it. Seems like the supply could be filled with cheap knock off imitations.

A little scary when you are sailing in 30 knots wondering if that single bolt holding your main shroud mast tangs is high quality or some cheap knock off. A previous post gave me the name B&S bolt in VA that sells mil spec bolts- I plan to get those.
