Now, I can say more about the field exchange too, The main unit is made by Ferdinand Schuchhardt, Berlin in 1937, during its long life the wooden box has been replaced with one from A&R Kammerer in Munic made 1939.  Another repair has been to replace the indicators, or at least the numbering, because it is numbered from 31 to 40 instead of 1 to 10.

Now I have tested it and everything works!

Nice looking unit!  I wish you luck with finding an SB-22.  I can't believe those things go for so much.  The ones in service in the units I served in were so beaten up and old, they had about 3 to 4 mm of paint on them to try to make them look presentable.

Have not found any here in Norway, This one is the cheapest I could see on eBay: https://goo.gl/v96k4j
With shipping from Poland, and tax + VAT I may end up with about $330, and that is more than I like   8)

 ;D  I just discovered that the numbering plate has to faces, so by turning it 180 deg. I got it right, and that will probably say; the indicators do not have to have been changed.   :D
