Someone has this amp for sale locally. They don't know the make of the amp. Any idea on the identity?

It's an early '50s Magnatone:



Very little documentation is available on Maggies from this era, but the model number is written on mine:



Mine is a very interesting amp; it was built in 1953, probably puts out about 25W from a pair of 6L6s into a 12" Jensen, sounds a lot like a tweed Pro on the instrument channel but has a thicker, darker and hotter sound on the mic channel. It's one of the earliest amps I've ever seen with a 12AX7-based preamp.
