Looks like American Classic or Kingsberry USA. Also looks like a freewheel, not a cassette. Good stuff--I had trouble with a SunTour freewheel on an American Classic hub 25 years ago--if I'd left it on I'd have stripped the threads, but going to a 7S DA (like you've got on there) fixed that. 20,000ish Seattle all-weather miles on the hub with only one bearing change, and I'm going to rebuild the wheel someday.
