I came straight to the experts. I got this from an estate sale lot. No one knows what it is. Is it something to do with an old radio? Anyone? Thanks in advance.

No it's not radio related, Because of the numbers shown on the dial, it is a barometer face and it's in the same range of numbers that would be used, it's range is in millibars of atmospheric pressure. If you will notice there is a couple of letters at the top center of the faceplate, lower cased   (  mb  ) = millibars of mercury,  which is a column of mercury that rises and falls with a change in atmospheric pressure. Since it's a dial face it has or had gear works like a clock, and levers that were connect to a sealed bellows. That bellows expanded when the pressure dropped, and contracted when the pressure increased.

I could be way off base on the symbol of an eagle, sitting on a globe, but it reminds me of the Natzi emblem. Could also be a manufactures symbol.

Thank you! It is, as you suggest, a Nazi barometer, probably from a boat of some sort. I really appreciate your quick reply.
