    Trouble id`ing brass radio / TV plate

    Has anyone seen any thing like this?
    I`ve searched everything that deals with car and home radio, TV and CB`s.
    There`s are no markings on the back and measures 4-inches x 2 and 1/8 inches approximate.

    Hope everyone is having a great day and thank`s for any help in advance.

    Is that a logo bottom left? Hard to see. Old AM radio maybe with a rotary dial. I vusualize it having a large thumb wheel type control like the Philco on the right. Sorry not much help.

    Thanks for your input Bigcypresshunter
    I`ve taken a close up of the Logo and it looks to me like a man with a beard in a driving hat?
    I have searched a few CB radio sites but found nothing with that finger rolling channel selector.
    It almost looks like the letters CB around his head?

    You did a geat job showing how it might have looked.

    Thanks for looking everyone and HH.

    You have an old AM radio dial plate. Probably 1930's to 1940's.
    I do not recognise the logo. Look in old AM radio manafacturers.
    There were a whole slue of folks wh made the Edison, Belmont, Sears, Silvertone. etc.
    WAY before CB came along.

    Looks like an EB. Could it be Edison Bell?

    That definitely looks like it. Is this for Edison Bell?

    No sorry I cannot find a match with Edison Bell. The logo is from a 1925 company no longer in business. I found it on a trademark site that sells old inactive dead logos. Logo Trademarks with a EB Inside the Logo

    The company did not make radios as far as I can determine. So I think its a dead end but I was just asking if the letters are the same. Its solvable for someone with time to search.

    Darnnit (sp) Bigcypresshunter you have got me all excited again because i believe the logo you posted is correct
    Iv`e already spent an hour tonight looking for the plate even on military items.
    I`ll keep looking; and try to clean it up a bit with some baking soda for better pics of the front and back.
    Thanks for looking ALL.

    Still not solved! Although I did not post I also have come to several dead ends.
    One promising lead was ham radio's, but that dead ended too.
    As always...Love Silver...but going for the Gold!

    OK, I've got a little closer. The emblem belongs to a radio maker called American Bosch.
