    I don't think too many collectors caught this item on Ebay. The magneto box is a Stromberg-Carlson, but the round metal piece with a modified hookswitch is a 1908 Western Electric Type 130. After removing the soldered on two pieces of metal from the hookswitch and restoring the faceplate, the type 130 is back to it's original condition.

      Hello sir. I have posted some pics on the show and tell site and you were the man who would know what it is and when it was used. If you will please look at it and tell me what you think. Thank you.
