Hello and welcome to The House of Chrome.
You are looking at a 1950's era DuKane Corporation 7C40 Dynamic microphone which is a variant of the Astatic DN seriesmicrophonebut basically the exact same mic with different label. This particular mic has a strong deco influence from the 30's, and 40's but was considered outdated by the 1950's as the designs were evolving quickly.As seen in the pictures provide the mic and stand are innice cosmeticcondition. The chrome grill is flawless and the original paint is very good despite some minor signs of wear. The joint mechanism is smooth and firm. The mic has been testedand provides a strong, clear signal. The matching stand has an6 foot cord witha Switchcraft 1/4 inch connector. The cord is in perfect condition. The handle operates exactly as intended and as you can see there is a tad bit of pitting on it towards the top.Felt padding on the bottom of the base is in greatcondition. This7C40is ready for any live event or ham radio.
