You are looking at a classic 1958 Shure Brothers 55S dynamic cardioid microphone.
This is an early 1950's era 55S with the Blue silk screen and blue label. It was the 3rd year the 55S was manufactured being a smaller version of the 1st generation 55 "Fatboy" microphone. This legendary microphone was used by many famous artists and politicians over the years including Elvis Presley and even the young revolutionary Fidel Castro. Those clean lines and deco styling make this mic stand out from all the others produced over the last century. Made in Evanston, IL U.S.A. This mic is a nice piece of mid-century Americana.
As seen in the pics provided this mic shows very nice chrome. There are no broken or bent ribs. This mic has zero rips or holes in the silk which is always a bonus.
