That is an H for Hot. You must have the handles backwards. Backwards handles can create major fluctuations in the concentric flow to the check port.

I'm around a long time. Any faucet with an H usually was a private lable for HAJOCA. In its day it was some pretty nice stuff.

The toilets used to have a little man in an oval circle. As a kid I can remember trying to pee on him.

There should be a " p " on the other handle. That faucet was made by Huelett Packard back in the 30's before they began making printers and computer equipment. Should be able to find parts easily.

I beg to differ. As I have studied Eygptian Hyergraphics this loosely translated to THIS IS A PROFESSIONAL PLUMBERS FORUM. PROFESSIONAL PLUMBERS ONLY.

All of you are wrong, cleary, the "H" on the handle, is not an H. It is turned the wrong way. It's an "I" for International Faucet Corp. Morons.

It has seen some wear, It is CHi, Chinese Imperial waterworks. Made in the Ming dynasty. Very rare. Go to your nearest chinese take-out place and ask how to get ahold of Wing. Wing will find it for you.

Obviously the letter "H" stands for Heil. They used to make faucets, but now make truck bodies.
