Given the advertising. I think it may be an "authorized" attachment.It replaces the number card holder with police, fire and phone # , as well as  easy to read #'s.
Just a Guess,

The yellow is just a sticker someone placed on the metal.  My first guess is that this is actually not a replacement for the original number card group, but a snap-on cover.

It seems to be more "civic" oriented vs advertising.

How about the Hall-Chadwell people who provide ambulance service in El Dorado, Arkansas?

See the ambulance and funeral home ad in the left column near the bottom, September 22, 1944.

What's the seller's location in the eBay listing?

I like the snap on center piece (never seen one before) as well as the sticker.....gives this phone 'personality'.....
