That's an EH-125 model, and it dates to around 1941. If you have a serial number, we might be able to confirm the year.

The serial is E4652-47. I tried to upload another pic but keep getting an error about file too large, though it is tiny.

Thank you for the help.

The features suggested 1941, and the factory order number seems to confirm it.

Thank you so much! I thought about taking it to a local music store for appraisal. Not sure the best approach for selling it...suggestions welcome.

Again thank you very much!
