Crown Water Cooler

Question:
I have a water cooler which is 11 and 3/4 inches tall. Around the middle it is approximately 30 inches. 2 inches from the top is a crown marking which is 2 1/2 inches wide from the crown tip and 1 3/4 high from the highest middle peak of the crown. The number 2 is in a circle in the middle and on each side of the 2 is a smaller circle and a triangle in a band. Under that are the letters USA in the section that would go on the head of the crown wearer. Approximately 5 inches down are two blue band which are a little over 1/2 inch thick. At the bottom is the spigot which is a heavy chromed piece. On the bottom of the cooler the letters USA are impressed into the bottom. I did some research and found that Ramsbottom uses this symbol, but found too many so called experts who gave conflicting information. Can you help me. Thank you, Nancy
