Not even in pristine condition.  Well, it's a person obviously not versed in these things, so I'll give them the benefit of a doubt that they're not trying to be insulting by using a lot of "fluff".  Lots of people try to sell things for a premium just because it's "old" w/o bothering to research it first.  The flip side to that is the same type of folks are where we find the bargains and out-right steals, but this ain't one of them.

So about the dial.  At first I thought it was an AE from the finger stop location, but it doesn't have the usual AE diamond logo on the back. 
Markings are "A 150" and then "M(?)-61".
The idea that a four-year degree is the only path to worthwhile knowledge is insane.

Jack Ryan had this comment about the dial:

I would say that the dial on Etsy is an ATEA dial - uncommon but not rare. Far too expensive in my opinion.

I moved a bunch of posts from this topic into a new topic "Tele-Chec Theatre Seating System - Dial" as the discussion got derailed from the original topic. Jacks comment was mived to tge new topic as well.
