Nope, but I do suspect it was refinished. Maybe it had a weak that came all the way off in the process?

Here's my Royal phonograph, showing the decal. The speed control is integrated with the on-off lever.

Wow, yours is very nice too. Funny that these machines designed to be lower end held up so well. Is that a decal or is it a metal tag?

It's a metal tag, fastened with four small round-head nails. It has the serial number on it-23079. Funny, I hadn't looked at it closely when I took the picture!
