Quote from: Sargeguy on December 01, 2014, 12:50:20 PMYes, but if it was for a local operating company they would not need one side from a telco on the other coast. Just heard back from the seller, he says he sold it for a guy who "found it in a box of Ferrari parts"
Quote from: unbeldi on December 01, 2014, 02:19:44 PMSo. California Telephone existed from ca. 1916 to 1947. The sign appears to be valid from 1921 to 1939. The lack of INCORPORATED may indicate it being early in that period.SNET existed prior and after, to even much beyond the Divestiture. It was considered more of an Independent than a Baby Bell. Would they have used the same signs as other operating companies? Probably. Even 20% of ownership would be good enough to benefit.
QuoteEnamel finishes are known to crack, is that what the imperfection is that you mentioned? Perhaps this happened when the other side was added or modified?
