UK Old Cab Identification help?

so the story goes (as told by my friend) that the cab pictured below was found in a shed/outhouse of a house his friend has just moved into. they have no idea where it came from or who the previous owner was and with no serial number/identification label anywhere on it I was hoping somebody on here might recognise it?

its pretty rotten fron what I could tell, its got damp everywhere from the front the speakers look alright but we couldnt get the screws out today since they are all rusted into the braces.



All Speakers

Close up of speaker

The spider and slug that came free with it

from the small amount of research I did, only cabs before 1969 wernt issued serial numbers and the only cabs I have seen pre-1969 have the golden grill.
so my Money is on it being either a Fender cab that has had a fake marshall grill put on it or its a complete fake but for 10 its still not a bad buy.

so any ideas?

if we do manage to identify the speakers Ill update this.

man, that thing is beat.

it looks like a bastard cab to me. i have had some eminence speakers with very similar dustcaps, but JBL's are also known for aluminum dustcaps.

i'd say your best bet is to get at those speakers, if/when you remove one then you should take a look inside the cab and see if there is anything to signify who may have made it (i had a peavey cab i dated based on a small tag on the jack plate).

the speakers should have a code stamped on the basket as well. it'll indicate manufacturer and production date of the speaker, this may help as well.

punk isn't dead, it's always smelled that way.
