Default Cam I.D.

I purchased a cam and was told it was a Ford blank that was sent to Isky to be ground. He told me that it was to be used in a 51 Flathead 8BA engine and to be used at the local drag strip. After cleaning up the cam, I have found these markings - E A : . Could someone tell me what the E A : means? Thanks very much.

The only markings I found are the ones I mentioned. The cam cleaned up very nicely.
