That second picture is a Zenith radio knob used on the 7H820 and similar models.

This happens more than once and a while on eBay phone listings. There are example in the Worst Photo on eBay topic and the example I posted in image below was discussed elsewhere on the forum asking the question of what was going on, what was being shipped if someone bought the item. This is one example of some 4 or 5 similar listings at the same time of which at least one actually sold. If I had some money to waste, I'd buy one to see what I got, if anything other than robbed. In this "berry" case, three were available, none sold.

I need a part time $$ stream...Maybe I could pull some buttons from my wife's sewing machine drawer and sell them as 2A dials?

Sheesh!

Wonder what they would say to a similar switch in the remitted payment?  I just let sales like that go right away.  Life's too short.

I like to think that somewhere on eBay is a Pabst bottle cap for sale that has a picture of a candle stick phone and that it is from the same seller.

I just asked the seller in the first one why his candlestick telephone looks like a bottle cap!  Let's see what happens!
