I am not at all knowledge on 302s so I need to ask: Is that the reversed network that should be on a 1937 302? And should the condenser have a plastic wrapping? Thanks for your help.

The condensers from that time have a gray plastic covering. And the 101A induction coils are "reversed" on all 302s until sometime between June, 1938 and October, 1938.

Although we think of the induction coils as being reversed in these early sets, the opposite is actually true. Notice that you have to read  L2Y, 101A, and the date upside down on any post-1938 sets, if you are looking from the front of the phone. They never changed the position of the writing even though they rotated the induction coil 180 degrees.
