New 5301
« on: January 12, 2011, 05:00:10 PM »
I just took delivery of what I thought was a standard G1 handset WE 5302. Stamped on the base is the model number 5301 CR 3GF. I note that the handset is the GF model with the G1 and F elements in the ear and mouth cavities. Can anyone tell me anything about the model? Is it noteworthy at all?
Dates are:-
Base 2 50
Ringer 2 50
Network 11 49
Handset is dated 64
Shell 8/24/62
Elements - mouth 9/50 - ear 8/10/45... the day after the Nagasaki bomb....

You can read a bit about the 5300-series variations here, and get BSP numbers for further research.
