Default Model A Horn

Hello Guys and Girls,
Last night, I was asked by a friend "What's this?" as he held up a Model A horn. I ended up buying it from him. It is a brand I haven't seen before. The only mark on it is a Letter "G" with an "I" inside it, then an "N" even smaller behind the I. I'm guessing that should read "G.I.N". Does anybody know anything of this brand? Year? anything?
PS It works well.
Thanks in advance.

Guys, thanks for all the terrific info, especially the link to an earlier thread by 29tudorsedan. I had a scratch around the flange and found another stamp at about the 10 o'clock position (looking from behind).
Is there anything you can't learn on Fordbarn????

Your horn appears to be a GMI.
