Oh you know I saw this one.... looks like an longer version of my unknown 1941 of last week or so... those round lug wells... so different.

'BRUNSWICK' - or is this the shorter version?

Lugs look different and open where the band attaches, so does the dial.

This looks more like it is a varient of the 1941 Broadcaster

Panel - do we need to re-open? I agree that it appear to be the Grant
