Already the different attributes for same kind of models show that this is not really reliable. It can help us to find out more, for instance Panamuse "K" series. We have to get a folder or other primary information about that series.

In the 4th edition of "Mallory Radio Service Encyclopedia" from 1941 we find Capehart on page 54 and 55 with the following models:

Model Link Nr. of tubes, Remarks and/or tubes IF Rider's
CK   11, 175 -
E-1   12, 465 10-1 - 3
103 Cosmopolitan   11, Chassis Z 175 5-1
104 Cosmopolitan   same as 103 Cosmopolitan 175 5-1
110G Panamuse   11, 465 10-4,6
202   9 465 7-1
203 Tuner   5 465 7-3
203 Amplifier   5 - 7-2
400A   14 180 4-1
400B   17 180 4-2
400, 401, 402   13 180 1-1
400B, 402B, 404B Tuner   17 180 5-2
400B, 402B, 404B All Wave   17 465 5-4
400D Tuner   9 465 7-4
400D Treb. Amp.   4 - 7-6
400D Bass Amp.   8 - 7-5
400G   23 465 10-13 - 34
6nd edition:
10-12 - 24

At last there is a "Standard Amp." with 6 tubes (3 x 56, 2 x 2A5, 5Z3), Rider's 5-5.

The information is for controls, condensers, vibrators, number of tubes incl. a complete tube complement, IF peak and Rider's reference.

When processing, I will enter the link to the model page. Interesting is that the 6th edition from 1948 brings the same table for Capehart (at least regarding our entries here), but the 400G has an other Rider's reference.

For Farnsworth there are naturally quite some differences. 4th edition page 115 to 117 shows 39 entries, some for multiple models, 6th edition has Farnsworth from page 142 to 145 with nearly the double amount of models from AC70 to GT-060 (061, 064, 065). 4th edition starts the same and ends at CT60, both don't show models starting with a number.
