Here is my railroad company dial from the Lehigh Valley, it was primarily an anthracite coal hauler, let started out using the Lehigh River for shipping coal by boat, and to speed up shipping built a railroad from Pennsylvania, east through New Jersey into New York City, and northward through New York State Buffalo on Lake Erie, it also ran many passenger trains, between New York City and Buffalo including the Black Diamond Express, and was known as the "Route of the Black Diamond" the company logo was a flag with a black diamond (to represent the anthracite coal.) with letters L.V. as can be seen on this double sunk Arabic dial with the wreath in turquoise blue around it.
