V72 by who?

Anyone know the manufacture of this V72. I've had the racked pair for 7 years of sweetness but I have never seen this logo, the protruding light and the V72 printed on a metal tag that's held on with brads. There maybe something inside but I've never opened them, I leave well enough alone.

I know many made this module for Telefunken but all I've ever seen look like clones, right by the spec, same module, different maker and usually a name. Not so on these just the logo that someone might recognize and the protruding light.

Just curious, thanks in advance, regards ,,deda,,

Thank you guys for all your views and I can see why no responses, no one's ever seen one, I may have the only pair.

BUT with the help of the Geekslutz forum guys I'm VERY Happy to say, "Case is Closed". They are early Telefunken made V72's, all the features listed are mods by some very capable engineer or DYI guy, an "eccentric capable engineer or DYI guy".

I felt that some of the curious members needed to know the answer to my question.

Here for the gear
 

Hi. So sorry to raise the dead on my first post. The logo is Fernseh GMBH. They produced Video equipment in the Danner format. A missing V72 faceplate was most likely replaced with this. They made mostly video but some audio. I have yet to find a tube pre version of this brand. Just germanium transistors transformer units used for god knows what UHF video purposes. Great for parts but have yet to find the holy grail of unknown Fernseh audio modules. I'm repurposing a pair of HC 15 VE B modules and hope to come up with something cool. I will start a mystery Danner thread to show my progress and investigatory progress.
