Grounded ringing was used on party lines to determine which party was which.  In many cases, when subscriber changed to a private line, grounded ringing stayed at the house.  One ringer wire went to Ground.

Mike where do you see a 37 date at? Oh, I bet your thinking the ringer is that early aren't you?
Base is stamped 40 along with the ringer and induction coil.
Handset elements 50.
