So is this a Spencer (or Sponsor),  or Senator "B"?  ...and what should the manufacture year be?  First digit of case serial number begings with 2.  Looks like Mr Wayne can see a date code on the movement which is not 1940.  I can't see the date code on the movement.

I'm seeing a star, which would make it 1941?
