Quote from: Bill on November 18, 2022, 04:52:53 PMI'm back, with another question on that pair of 2AA dials. The number plates in the pictures could both be described as "Numbers, no letters, Operator". This description doesn't map into any of the 2xy dial types in Jack Ryan's table (above). Is there an entry missing in the table? Or am I expecting too much correlation between number plates and dial types?I just dug up another dial with exactly the same notched number plate - "Numbers, no letters, Operator". The fingerstop on this dial says 2AE, but clearly that number plate doesn't match the 2AE description in the table.I guess my real question is this. If I have a dial that is identified by fingerstop as a 2AE, but the number plate doesn't match the 2AE description, how do I know what kind of dial I've got?
