Quote from: Doug Rose on July 25, 2014, 02:46:40 PMWhen were the first G1 Space savers made? I found one last weekend with a date of 4/13/39 on the receiver, 4/39 on the transmitter, II 39 on the inside and I 39 on the dial plate. I still thought C1s were made in the late 30s. Any ideas?....thanks....Doug
Quote from: rp2813 on July 31, 2014, 01:59:17 AMThe 7/38 F1 handset on the previous page causes me to wonder about my later "29" embossed F1, which has the verbiage "Manufactured By" instead of "Made By." Would it be correct to conclude that the different terminology depends more on which WECo facility "made"/"manufactured" it, and less on the date it rolled off the production line?Is one type more common than the other? I tend to think "manufactured" disappeared from all F1s at some point before WECo ceased production, but have no idea of when.
Quote from: poplar1 on July 31, 2014, 10:02:28 AMAs for the brown handsets, I'd have to disagree, based on the following sample:
