Quote from: unbeldi on May 09, 2016, 03:35:37 PMMany, if not most of the so-called early and ever-so 'original' 302s that people sell on eBay, really aren't original at all, they are most likely falsified constructed sets, with other intentions than being authentic.If it is shiny, one should probably be cautious. :-)Many have E1 handsets without grooves, which IMHO were NOT used in the first half of 1937 anymore. I do think all new E1 handsets by that time had grooves.
