That marking COULD (not definitely, but could) stand for American Express Bank & Trust.

AEB&T was chartered in 1930 after Chase National Bank (later Chase Manhattan) obtained most of the shares of the American Express Company.

But, it didn't last long, as Chase and the Equitable consolidated in December 1931...

Be interesting if it could be traced to that company. Very narrow window of operations for it.
