Default Useful tuning scale and label scans etc

A Mullard MAS97 radio I have here temporarily came with a complete sheet of station ident labels for the preset station buttons.

I thought these could be useful for other members who own this set or similar sets, so have scanned them and attached them here. The ZIP file contains the full size scan at 300DPI, the image is smaller due to forum size restraints. Each ident is approx 16mm by 8mm.

Rather than just posting as a thread which can get lost, I thought a sticky thread where people can post other scans of tuning scales, labels, logos and other idents would be a useful resource. Please add whatever you have that could be useful for other restorers.

PLEASE DO NOT USE THIS THREAD TO REQUEST SCANS, JUST TO POST ONES YOU HAVE TO SHARE. THANKS.

The backing has peeled off this HMV dial. About 1942. From a cabinet, alas, no innards.

Artwork for Marconi CR300 logging scale dials, I posted some in the refinishing section the other day but in these ones I have updated the font specifications so as to be a closer match to the original dials, parameters for recreating the images in your own drawing program are given in each picture.
