It is also found with various other retailers names on the radio.

Over the years Belmont Radio made radios for various retail chains who
assigned their own model numbers and applied their names on the radios.
Identical cabinets were sold between different distributors.
Airline, Belmont, Coronado, Delco, Freshman, Good Year, Imperial
Lafayette, Mantola, Truetone and Western Royal
are some of the names found on Belmont-made radios.
These distributors bought radios from other radio manufacturers
such as Wells Gardner and Detrola as well,
so not all radios with these names are Belmont-made.
