Crazy, this was found by my wife a few weeks ago. The only history I was able to find was that the company was in business in Louisville Ky. In fact there's still an old building on Jackson Street that still has what's left of a painted name on the brick that says American Elevators and Machine Co. I did find a few images of this plate on Google and one did just sell today on LiveAuctioneers for $1,000!
I'm guessing that this comes from the inside of a grain elevator. Probably turn of the 20th century!
