      what is the eye below the dial. is it an indicator valve for station acuracy?

      I'm scared to open it - in case it breaks. Thank you so much for the information - I will try so see if I can get to any numbers without damaging the case!

      I would say circa 1939. Interestingly, one station, W2XR was only licensed 1929-1936, it changed it call sign after that. The paint job is after the fact. Under that gold paint is a marbleized Bakelite dial bezel and tuning wheels.

      This dial is common to many 1939 Montgomery Airline Radios.

      Maybe an old chassis mounted to a custom made console?
