In the United States, what was the first registered trademark?

1 Answer

In the United States, the first registered trademark was from Samson (a rope-making company), featuring a depiction of the Biblical figure Samson wrestling a lion, was the first to be trademarked in 1884, and is still used by that company today.

The company's famed trademark depicting Samson slaying a lion was registered in 1884 and is the oldest active registered trademark in the United States. The company's association with the strength of the biblical character is apt, since its ropes have long been the best in strength and durability.
