The *228* was used on streetcars and other obscure uses, and so it is rare, but not exactly in high demand.  The 229w was commonly used on a number of desk phones.  Lug refers to the lug that was attached to the back of the transmitter cup for use on candlesticks and 293A wall phones.   Cups without lugs were used on No. 10 arms. Can you post a picture of the *228* faceplate???
