I recapped a radio for a fellow , and he sent me a photo of a family radio his family owned .
I suspect it is a Rogers, by the center dial , but I don't know .
maybe Silvertone? Please help.

No a USA brand pretty sure so Rogers is a good guess if its in Canada. Also Westinghouse was big there, and Deforest-Crosley, but I'd guess Rogers. We see a few Canuck radios here in the Detroit area every so often. Most have huge 25 cycle power xfmrs, they run extra cool on 60 cycles of course.

Hate to look like an idiot here, but it just feels like it's a Bendix to me.

I've checked the usual suspects but have not found a dial that wide anywhere yet.

My first thought was Marconi. The part that threw me was that knob in the middle ... I don't recall Marconi ever using a lever style band change knob and ... what else could that lever be for? I'd say Marconi.

My second choice would be DeForest.
