William, it may be good to post your general location
- someone nearby may want to pick it up.

Also, a picture posted somewhere that may be viewed
could be helpful.

The folks over on the antique radio forum often ID
such things fast - and there is usually someone who
has been looking for one for a long time who would
be very grateful!
