Re: Western Electric wooden telephone types -- TYPE 138A

188A TYPE 138A Subscriber's Set

There are two wiring diagrams pasted on the inside door. The newer one shows an induction coil, which is missing.

Edit: This is a 138A, not 188A.
The paper label pasted over the original one is marked "315A", but someone marked that out in pencil and changed it to "138A."  The stamp in the wood on the back of the subset and inside the door is "TYPE 138A."

Is there anything different about the TYPE 10 that differentiates it from a typical 2-boxer?

Mountjoy's book indicates the subset was bridging, used between 1893-1902 and had short ringer coils.  Not many out there as I remember when I got and posted a picture to the ATCA listserv, Walt replied that he had never in his years heard of a Type 10.

It's fun when you get stuff that stumps the experts.  Unless you are looking for parts for that thing.
