1948 American Eagle

Didn't see an ad for one but it does match this one in the database-

I went with the American Eagle vs His Excellency due to the top of the lugs forming a "square" vs an "L" shape like the His Excellency

Nice runner..needs a little cleaning and oiling but runs good.....crappy band

I know y'all have been slammed lately with new entries so I do my best to make a positive ID to make it as easy as I can for you. (Doesn't mean I'm right every time though. lol)

I would agree with American Eagle based on the lugs.  It took me a few minutes to digest the subtle difference.  I was able to find a couple of ads in 1947, seems like most were in 1946.  Nice job on finding the ID.
