 I don't know what the panel looks like for the auxiliary power unit in an aircraft. With the three ammeters and three position switch for the voltmeter, I think it is for a gas powered generator.

Judging from the hardware...not an aircraft panel and not WWII...looks like, from the push to test lights and breaker style, wre connetcors etc... I would say 70' or newer, external type generator set control panel

With three ammeters and three different voltage selections on the switch, I think it is for a 3-phase generator.

The technology didn't change much between the 40s -70s on stuff like this, but that still doesn't tell us exactly what or exactly when this came from.

I too do not think it is an aircraft panel.

Post a pic of the very bottom/middle of the panel so we can see what is printed. Might narrow it down.
