Hi,  I dug that Stromberg phone out of my basement. I hadn't looked at it in a couple of years. It's transmitter nub which is spherical instead of flat, fits in to an opening about 1.25" as compared to the center holes of my payphone tops which are 7/8".  It does use a small screw on each side like the payphones but isn't relevent to payphone history after all.                      Russell

Thanks for the feed back I have been looking for these mounts for years,they are really hard to come by. I added the one to the 34A10 because I had several Strowgers of the same era with them on it. There is no place I have found that will tell you in any book why the large hole is in the housing versus the small one. One day looking at a bunch of these sets and parts it came to me. As with a lot of this stuff the learning never stops. Often the only way to understand why things happened is having enough stuff to compare and come to conclusions. Much of the history is lost. Jim
