Anyone recognize this TRV?

It's one of several in a church we're working on, and is probably 20-30 years old. There are no markings on them whatsoever. They want to install more TRVs, and keep the same model if possible. Thanks in advance for any information.

    @Steamhead Whoever got the first Patent..it looks that old 

    Just keeps reminding me of Honeywell but Danfoss keeps showing up but they all seem to be embossed 
    One way to get familiar something you know nothing about is to ask a really smart person a really stupid question

    The head looks like a Danfoss. The body I have never seen before. Might be a very early Danfoss.

    Just did a quick search of your image and came upon this website. Looks like the body may be a Danfoss RAVL.

    Hi @Steamhead , I looked all over the web and found some similar valves in style and finish, (all Danfoss) but nothing exactly matching. Anyone have some old Danfoss catalogs?

    Yours, Larry

    Thanks, all- I'll call Danfoss and see what they have to say.

    The head looks like an ISTA but the body not so much. I installed a lot of them a long time ago, maybe over 25 years ago.
