An 01/02/49 302AW, best I can reckon. Looks cool, works great. Part of a small cache of parts 302's I recently acquired from a forum member; still need many more. $10.00, as a part of the package deal.
Sláinte!

A small cache of parts 302's: included one 304, one 306, one 302GX...  a good start, to be sure. Still need more for subsets, and other existing / outstanding projects.

     I finally found an affordable F-1 5302; my only other one has a G-1 handset. This one is no glamour queen, but will fill a void in my collection, for the time being. ;)

     It is a 5302G-3, apparently. I would certainly appreciate input as to what that designates.

Best regards!

302G is a 302 with  a 3-conductor mounting cord and a letters and numbers dial plate.

5302G is a 302G that has been converted to a 5302G by changing the housing and number plate.

-3 is black

With an F-type handset, it is a 5302G-3F.

With a G1 handset  (U-1 receiver + T-1 transmitter), it is a 5302G-3G.

With a GF handset (G1 handle + HA1 receiver + F1 transmitter), it is 
5302G-3GF.

poplar1,

     Thanks for the detailed, and informative answer! I greatly appreciate both. Since you seem to have the references memorized, or, at least, at hand.... what does 302GX designate? I have a II / 52 so designated, in vermillion ink on the exterior baseplate.

     Best regards!

Do you see anything different about it? Maybe an F-4 handset?

     I just have the base, no body no handset. There doesn't seem to be any unusual / extraneous components, such as a vacuum tube, additional terminal boards, or the like, to differentiate it from a standard 302-type.

     I just wondered what the 302GX might have designated. ???

Thanks for your assistance! I am always appreciative of your input, and most grateful for your help!

Best regards!

Wow!

      In the 8+ months since I last posted any additions to my collection, I have acquired quite a few!
     
      Guess I gotta start somewhere, though not in chronological order. Here goes:

     Mid-City Motel 302... from celnout. $ 19.99.

     This is a "WESTERN ELECTRIC" model 302 from
the "Mid-City Motel".

I think this was "Extension 68" and it disappeared from the motel when "Curly" lifted the yellow card from the phone and saw that it was covering the sticker that said "All local Calls 20 cents".

Anyway it's a non-dial 302 that will work fine as a patio "Answer Only" phone.

No cracks in the plastic. Looks like it would work good, but is untested and sold "as-is"!


Please, note that these are all auction photos of my items, and those hands and fingernails are not mine, unless otherwise noted lol!

Best regards!

Metal '46 302

Urrrkkk!!! :o
     Ben, I believe, to the best of my estimation, I have somewhere between 8-10... have to poke around a bit, to be certain! ;) As told in a much earlier link, I just think they look elegant, graceful, 'smooth', Art-Deco, etc. Whatever.

      I likes 'em, me ol' chum, an' no mistakin'!

     Here's another, from Doug Rose--- A nice example of a 1946, with a metal body. $39.99. Needs a little love, but that's what we collectors are all about, right? ;)

Best Regards!

That looks like a fun project, I take it your going to give it a nice paint job?

Or will it be your un-restored, yet fully functional telephone?

     Definitely on the list for a patient, loving, hand-rubbed paint job. Actually, it's the only historically significant metal 302 I have, so I probably ought to do it up right, eh? ;)

     Here's another metal 302 I got as a 'Parts" phone, though I now think it will be restored. $32.50. Mainly bought for the metal body, but there's more here...

     Base and ringer are dated 3/41. No discernible date on the body. F1W handset, TX contacts dated II 42, TX element dated 10/42. No RX element. Brown cloth cord, restraint marked, (stacked from top to bottom), 4-0, H3C, IV 51.

     Looks like it has served some time in the military, based on the sticker...

Best regards!

I've also added a pair of "Loud Ringers" to my collection...

     The first one is a 592-A, 8/54 ringer date. Looks (and even smells) pretty NOS inside; has that delightful, at least to some of us, tube-radio / tube-amplifier smell. ;) Yum!

$8.99

Best regards!

Here's the second  "Loud Ringer": an L1AMP, dated 81341. $19.95. Guess I lost my head ;)

     Just about NOS. Anybody have a clapper cover, and screw in their spares bin?

Best regards!
