Default KB Calypso dial

I am trying to ascertain if the blue emblem on the dial in this photo is original to the radio.

It seems the more normal dial centre has what appears to be a matt nickel plated brite.

Has any one got a KB Calypso or Lyric radio which has a dial with this blue emblem on.
Or any other radio that has a similar blue badge in the centre of the dial.

Thanks
Mike

Not very helpful I know Mike but it looks very much out of place to me.

Same here. It doesn't look right to me. Looks like a later addition.

Thanks,
Peter
