Not sure if this helps, but it looks like there  is a 45 RPM adapter on the turn table. If there is a 45 rpm speed switch then it would probably be made post 1949. In 1949, the 7",  45 RPM records started being released.  Hope this helps. SKIP

I know WW2 era turn tables command some$.  Post war probably not as much. Just a listing I saw and wanted to get some info. Thanks for the reply.

A larger unit with turntable. This is post war, even without the .45RPM adapter. Used for playing reveille and retreat records I suspect.

By the way, if anyone would like this unit, you may come by the Seattle area and pick it up.
