This siren has been discussed before, and iirc it does a noon blast. This is a Cosgrave siren.

I'd say Type-B as there's no grille on the end. Honestly though, Google Streetview imagrey is too low quality for us to really decide.

Had a "crappy street view" case turn up in the village of Danburg, GA:

Best guess is a Model 2 with part of the housing missing, but I thought I'd toss this here in case someone has a closer guess.
Don't wait. Take a siren photo today.

This was shared on Facebook. I am assuming this is some sort of custom Sentry, because Sentry has done custom sirens before.

It's a 10V with only half the horns.

Less of a mystery siren more of a mystery blower. Found this gem in Sweetwater, TX. It is probably a A1.. but why is the blower square?

edit: It was just a akward angle, it isn't square.

Another siren enthusiast posted this on Sentry Siren's page. As it turns out, it is a 3V8-H.

Not so much a mystery, but I'd appreciate some clarification. Is this just a Banshee missing its top shroud? Or did ACA make a siren like this for a special purpose?

This unit is in Pritchett Colorado on Randolph Street between 3rd and 4th. I doubt it's active as there is a new Sentry 15/20VxT next to it.

Banshee 110, with maybe a 'disk' from a Screamer on it?
