Trying to Identify Wagon Maker

I am restoring my grandpa's old box wagon. I found some trim on the gear and a picture to go by, but can't figure out the words on the scoop board. It is a Millburn no. 83, made in Toledo, Ohio. I am not sure if the scoop board was made by the same company. Millburn & Studebaker were in cahoots at one time.

The scoop board was painted Oliver green and the metal sides were white. These are some letters we think we could make out. Can anyone help? Can the third line be Defiance or the fifth line Maria Stein? Was it made in Indianapolis by a different company? It seems that name was on there.
