Quote from: Jim Stettler on January 29, 2020, 05:54:32 PMThat is a really cool housing. It is branded which I always feel is a bonus on a clear or swirl set. IMHO An obscure branding is always funner/cooler than a common one .In the January 1943 Bell Laboratories Record page 120, there is a photo of a clear and white swirl 302 housing.This housing was created to study flow patterns of the plastic.I was able to take a photo of the the photo and caption. I need to download it at work and send it to myself before I can post it here.The photo looks more like a black and white swirl than clear and white swirl to me. Jim(side note) long ago I heard of an old rose/White swirl 302 that was in a collection on the east coast.

Quote from: HarrySmith on January 31, 2020, 06:47:15 AMThe description calls it a "subset". It is clearly a 302 body. Is the desription wrong or is it the wrong picture?
Quote from: HarrySmith on January 31, 2020, 07:40:44 AMAAHH - that is nomenclature I was not aware of. I thought it was called a telephone. Thanks for clearing that up! What did they call a subset back then?
