During the 50's and 60's military surplus was kind of like the Ebay of today. Walk into a dusty old store or browse a flyer- you'll never know what you might find. My guess is that that's where this came from and they often had piles of each item. What it originally was used on I have no idea.

I don't see anything on that piece that resembles the photo? Did I miss something?

Hal you got that right. This was assembled from some spare parts of something, but what that something is has remained a mystery. That is my quest. I figure the more eyes that see this the greater the odds of cracking the mystery.

What does the button all the way to the right say?

Edit: nevermind, I found the answer above. :-p

They wouldn't be elevator buttons, would they?

Or a control panel from something on a shop floor (manufacturing or some other operator based machine).

A couple of more pictures would help... back off so we can see the whole thing, front back and sides. Those look like switchboard lamps, but cannot be for sure without seeing the backside. Assuming there is wiring on the backside it will tell if it is factory wired or custom job.

Photo wise that is all I have.
But I can say in all certainty it is a custom job.
I hope to identify the push button parts only. The signal or pilot lights are used in vintage automotive applications and fender, guitar amplifiers. The chicken head knob is a common piece.
Its the push button parts I cant seem to find or be able to id.
