Notes Made by General Electric. Introduced December 1922, discontinued March 1924. Dou to shortage on UV199 tubes the real marketing started only in 1923, although the set was existing well in 1922.
Early instructions and sales pamphlets (see also schematic) referred to two "B" batteries for 45 Volts. That is good for headphone use. To operate a Loudspeaker later (and more common) models can use 90 Volts plus a "C" battery (to reduce distortion and B-current. These sets have a terminal plate for "C" and additional "B" mounted on top of the Audio X-former. Seems that the first sets [without the terminal plate on the Audio X-former]..does have the decals in the front door/lid.. instead of having them placed in the back door/lid behind the batteries...
