Quite possible had the mid-grade "Red Spot" dial on it Larry, I have also seen them with Factory metal dials as well. Whether the metal dials were replacements I do not know.

thank you Bila. I have heard that this grade was a trolly grade and could have an electric railroad dial. Not sure though.

Yes Larry they would have passed as trolley grade but there were many more sold with standard dials then the electric railroad dials in my opinion.

I probably have had at least a 1/2 dozen or so of these over the years and all mine were either the metal or red spot dials and others I have seen were also along those lines. Although in saying this, I think it would have been up to the person doing the buying at the time of purchaseSmile
