Thanks for sharing the pics.  Id've never seen such a phone otherwise.

I remember as a teenager I messed with 2 different 302s that had a different kind of receiver capsule.  Nobody seems to know what they were.  Do you think they were non-WE non-Connecticut that just happened to fit?

Connecticut receiver capsules are much different than Western. They are not flat and has a deep fit in one corner. Transmitters are the same....Doug
