ARTS & P Australian New Zealand licensing system
"The ARTS&P system was a licensing system that was used in Australia and New Zealand between 1934 and the 1960s. The system was introduced to verify that radio manufacturers payed royalties for the items they were using that were covered by Patents. Some radio makers avoided this by selling parts, rather than complete radios, even though the parts could be easily assembled into a radio. Each licensed radio was fitted with a small sticker attached to the back of the chassis.
The colour of the sticker is a useful way of determining the age of manufacture.
1934 White, serial number prefixed by the letter A
