I am currently working in Afghanistan and came across this 1962 Steelers logo sticker on a fuel tank. I thought is was interesting to have it here.

That would be the OLD U.S. Steel logo, the one that the Steelers logo is ultimately based on.

Well I guess I should clarify, it's really hard to tell what the colors in the logo are but yeah funny how and where things can show up.

So According to that website the Steelers Logo was never officially used with the word "Steel"?

Apparently so, it's not even on the main site. I swear they used the "Steel" logo on their helmet though, because I remember it being in NFL 2K5 as a retro uniform.

This was their logo though...

The Steelers wore a blank yellow helmet during most of the 1962 season. They then added that logo which read 'STEEL' for the last 5 games of that season.

In 1963 when they switched their helmet color to black they changed the wording on the logo to 'STEELERS' ...........

Is "steeler" an actual word or was it just made up as a team name? It's not in the dictionary (at least dictionary.com) while "oiler" is defined as someone or something that oils machinery (though not necessarily the roughneck type workers Houston's AFL team portrayed). Interestingly, the first thing I think of when I hear "oiler" is a military tanker ship, a definition they didn't have.
