    I picked up this rotating calendar at a Seattle telephone show last month.
    This calendar was more than likely a give away item by Automatic Electric Co. which was the manufacturing arm of GTE. The base is stamped Brown & Bigelow patent pending ST. PAUL, MINN. I later found out the calendar was Patented by Charles A Ward on July 16, 1929
    and assigned to Brown & Bigelow. I added the patent page.

      I love it! I do have a pin very similar to this symbol AE. The symbol changed quite a bit over the years. Any symbol older than the one you show will be in the shape of a Strowger Dial (complete with finger holes).
