Certainly looks like the "E" minus the band of course. It's possible that the case shape is the variant.

Yep its a better picture, but not a better picture of the "E" variant Fifth uses in root record ad.  Root record ad is from 1953. Ad above is 1955.  
I'm changing my ticks from two (tentative) to three.
