I have a Western Electric Candle stick phone with a 2AB dial and it is stamped 20AL on the back of the post, with a line stamped though it, would it be a 20AL or 51AL  Thanks

if you look on the other side of the perch you should find a marking.

It was probably converted to one of the following:
50-AL, 51-AL or 151-AL.

I just bought one today that had a 20-AL stamp that was obliterated and 51-AL stamped on the front.  It came with a 534-AR subset (with a relay).  The relay was dated 1936.

If the 20al is marked out, there will be another marking somewhere on the perch.  Look again.
