Quote from: FABphones on April 30, 2022, 02:22:08 AMCould you add images of the paper diagram, also of front, rear and top of the wooden box.Zooming in on the paper label on your photo, it appears to have a date of Jan 19.Cannot quite read the year, perhaps 1897. Hopefully another member can confirm.

Quote from: FABphones on April 30, 2022, 10:24:57 AMWiring diagram (below) from above link. I would print and paste the copy back into the Subset.A search for WE 334A will offer up quite a few threads which are worth a read.
Quote from: TelePlay on April 30, 2022, 11:32:44 AMA D1 desk set with an anti-side tone subset is a 202.A D1 desk set with a side tone subset is a 102.Both work as phones. You can use the 334 with your D1 (3 wire mounting cord - 102) until you find a anti-side tone (4 wire mounting cord - 202) subset.It's up to you.And, I was thinking you had a wood subset box, not metal. The metal box would have had an ink stamped model number inside it or on the back. IMO, the 334 restored is collectible, don't see then that often.

Quote from: TelePlay on April 30, 2022, 06:17:15 PMI think that's what I said, using simple words in an abstract overview of the differences.A 3 vs 4 conductor mounting cord AND the availability of a coil feedback circuit in the subset yields the functional configuration matrix of possibilities.One of my sources posted long ago on the forum (one of many discussing all possible configurations)http://www.classicrotaryphones.com/forum/index.php?topic=4670.msg153046#msg153046
