    You can look online at brand books by-state. But you will most likely only find current registered brands.
    And the brand can be sheep, cattle or horse and can be different owners of the same looking brand but used on different parts of the animals body. Ie; shoulder or hind quarter.

    Gun is from 1916.

    I'd start there.

    I looked at 1920, '26 and '28. Easy brand to miss in the books.

    The T Rafter (or Rafter T) Ranch. You will have to find some very old ranch brand books in order to move forward with research. The State, and sometimes the County Clerk, can be sources.

    The guys posting so far are correct, stupid as it is, a brand registered in one jurisdiction can be registered by someone else and used in another perfectly legal, as is the case for location on the animal, type of stock its registered for etc etc... but being that "Yuma" is engraved and looks pretty old in itself, best bet is to go straight to Arizona's brand & ranch history books for answers.

    I once searched our own brand out of curiosity, it's been ours for 70-80 years, and even still I found it registered elsewhere, identical! Initially I thought it was worth reporting as fraud and serious concern, until I was informed that provincial, state and cross-border registrations aren't compiled or intertwined as a universal be-all end-all type record keeping. Which I guess explains pretty good why rustlers tend to run stolen cattle to rings and sales far away from where they pick 'em and often are able to get away with it!

    Anyway.. all bs aside & either way, yours looks like a real interesting Colt. I like reading on these ones.
