Diesel it is. Though it may have been subcontracted by Gottleib Daimler.

Looks like the work of J. H. Buckbee, relabeled for sale by A. W. Diesel.

DANG!

When I saw the subject title, I was HOPING that one of the three banjos I've made from piston ring liners from Diesel locomotives  had gone on the market.

Actually, "Screaming Jimmy" would be an OK name for a banjo company.
