Default Antique servos ?

I have two antique servos that I need to identify. There are no markings. They are constructed of brass and the "circuit board" is similar to material used in 1950's electronics. Any help? See picture

Good call Easytiger, I,ll bet your right. I kept wanting to say some sort of an early actuator for a reed set but something was not quite right as I remember many of them being linear output.

It's an odd and very specific servo. Will give left and right rudder, and forward-stop-reverse for an electric boat. If my memory serves me correctly, the aristo code-a-matic mechanical pulser works with it...

Default for sale

They are for sale or trade if anyone is interested. I would trade for a used FM aircraft radio set (4 channel)

Realistically speaking, I think you might be asking a little much for them. I would pay $20 apiece for them, tops. They are a very obscure and specific item. If you put them on ebay, you MIGHT find someone willing to pay a bunch for them, but only might. Airplane stuff is much more desireable.
I don't have a boat that I want to put a vintage radio into, or I would make an offer.
Good luck with it, neat stuff.
