National had green knobs, but I don't recognize that one. The key is the color. Radio manufacturers had certain colors they liked. Heath had green colors, but again, I don't recognize that knob. Go on Ebay or a Radio Museum site and browse by manufacturer. Get a feel for their color preferences and see if you can spot the knob.

Thanks, Norm. I didn't realize that color would be a factor in identifying and the picture I posted showed the color incorrectly because it was under weird lighting.

The actual color of the knobs was a dark grey. I changed the photo to black and white to help eliminate the confusion.

Thank you,

Chris

Gonset used that style knob on a few of their products. Although the wrong color shown here, I believe they used the same knob, the color you're looking for, on their G76 transmitter/receiver.

Mike,

Good guess!
Until I saw the size of the knob, it was a good candidate for a Gonset knob.
Looks very similar to the smaller faux-Dakaware Japanese knobs they used on the Communicator III's.
But then, those were all a blue color...
