    I haven't seen one like this in all my Ham Radio days. Might be for a small audio recorder.
    The color reminds me of the Collins Ham radio company. Im sure its not them. They would the letter C.

    I was just thinking maybe its a Magnavox.

      My dad was a Collins expert and I can tell you that is not a Collins. Dad repaired Ham Radios for people all over the US and around the world. His station was all Collins...

      That is a Voice of Music Bullet Microphone, probably 1960s era?

      Here's a shot of part of dad's parts bins..

      Dad repaired radios as a hobby, but people started calling him Collins

      Here's an example like yours..

      Your Dad had a cool shop. I use to have Drake radios R-4B and T-4xb station and L-4B. Got my ticket in 1970 while in high school and still use ham radio today.
    4. dav2no1 dav2no1, 7 months ago taught electronics at vocational College in late 60- to early 70s while retiring from the Air Force, then went on to retire from boeing.

      I've been dragging stuff to the Ham radio &electronics swap meet for 13+ years and still have a bunch left to go. As Hams get older, their estates are released and prices have dropped. That and the fact, young people don't want to work on anything.

      Still have a pile of Collins manuals, original shipping boxes(with hang tags, etc), Collins books and a whole sheet of new dial covers and some misc parts.

      Here's a few more Ham related items I posted..

      Dad also taught technician and advanced license classes, electronics, crystal trouble shooting, digital fundamentals and a few more classes in our basement for local hams.

      He was also the FCC interference rep for the area. W7BUN
