Mystery bookshelf speakers - with pics

Speakers | Audiokarma Home Audio Stereo Discussion Forums - audiokarma.org
I was at my local ReStore and saw these speakers. They were heavy and old, so I bought them.

The label is worn. All I can make out is Model BE-65 or maybe it is BB-65.

The grills were nailed in place. I think I was the first to ever remove them. They have the following specs:

Acoustic suspension

3" paper cone tweeter

6" paper cone mid

12" paper woofer, inverted cloth ? surround

drivers are rear mounted on baffle

Dimensions: 23-3/4" H x 14-3/4" W x 12-1/4" D

Weight: 33 lbs each

All drivers work, but they definitely need a recap. They cabinet leaks or the surrounds need doping (most likely both). They cabinets are veneer with wood trim around the grill. They look worn. I cannot see any easy way to get inside the cabinets. There are 4 nail heads visible around the woofer.

The speakers don't appear to be keepers, unless their sound improves tremendously.

Any ideas on origin or manufacturer?

The terminal plate reminds me of the Dynaco A-25 terminal plate, except terminal spacing is much wider and limited printed info.
