WE Operators Hanging Transmitter
« on: February 03, 2016, 06:08:40 PM »
I won a real nice operators hanging transmitter, looks to be a Bower Barff  finish. Much better than the flash pictures show it.

There are two holes in the top and I want to display it properly. Any information would be great..... many thanks....Doug

I did have a 19A (or similar). I don't recall selling it, but I haven't seen it around for a long time. It had a strange finish kinda a copper and black two tone finish. It appeared to be a real finish.

I think mine may of been AE, It was very close in appearance to the 19A.
