Did anyone here win this 302 from 230th Signal Company?
« on: March 09, 2013, 11:16:07 PM »
I was watching the auction on eBay for this 302 with a non-W.E. dial, and was wondering if anyone here won it.  (I am pretty new around here, so my impression of what I was seeing might not be correct!)

http://www.ebay.com/itm/360606137937

I have too many phones on the bench at the moment, so I only bid a little, someone else got it and I hope to be able to find out what it was made up of.

G-Man was explaining a bit about the history of the TP-6 phones in the thread, http://www.classicrotaryphones.com/forum/index.php?topic=8917.0

Between that and Paul-F's page, http://www.paul-f.com/weTP6A.html , I was hoping to be able to identify a WWII version of the 302.

The bottom of this phone showed a standard base, but it was marked with, "230th Signal"

So, if you were the winner of this phone, please let us know what you find when you receive it and open it up!

Thanks!
Nick

Hopefully whoever bought it won't try plugging it in as-is.... :o
