I have had this stick for about ten years. I've been threatening to clean it up for a while, Friday off from work; so here it is. This is really a different stick, but I am by no means an expert. It is a gun metal gray, with a brass tube that slides over. The transmitter and Hookswitch are brass. Makes a stunning combination. The hookswitch is on the opposite side. Is this a left handed stick I have heard about? Clearly marked Kellogg on the transmitter, base and the top of the bakelite handset. An extra added bonus,it was made into a lamp!!.....gggrrrr. I took it apart and thought I go swing it to the bottom, but no go. This is a really odd arrangement on how the transmitter cup is attached. Not like anything I have seen before. I am still very happy with the way it turned out. Any information is more than appreciated....Doug

Very nice - it's a keeper.  I think that the stem was reassembled incorrectly.  On my Kellogg stick, you just pull out the stem, turn it 180 degrees, and presto, receiver arm is on the other side.
