'69 Marshall (Small Box) with "Rush" logo
I friend of mine has a 1969 Marshall 50W small box  
head with "Rush" stenciled on the bottom in white.  
The logo matches the cover of Rush's first album.  
Did Rush mark all their amps this way in the early  
days or do you think this was the work of a fan?

Alex did use Marshall's on the tour so he has stated. You can find him at the club he owns in Toronto called "The Orbit" he plays there on Saturdays.

Book Of The Day The Ultimate Tone, Volume III by Kevin O'Connor
Have you ever wondered if there is a better way to build a Bassman, Champ, Plexi, an 800, AC-30, Bulldog or Portaflex? Or you wanted to build an SVT with off-the-shelf parts? How about a master-volume amp that doesn’t change tone with the master setting? Everything you need to know is right here, including: proper grounding techniques, wiring methods, and mechanical considerations. Eighteen chapters cover the “iconic” amps everyone knows and loves, with schematics and layouts for each, along with the technical history of the product. Eyelet-board and chassis-mounted tube socket construction is used throughout, for easy servicing and modding. TUT3 is very accessible even if you cannot fully read a schematic and is a "must have" if you are going to build an amp for your self.
