    Not a collection, but one of my collectible items

    Look at this everyday on the shelf but hadn't thought about sharing it till now. From 1902 or older and passed down through the family to me several years ago. The test card is dated for 1902.

    Late reply, the only thing I know is my grandfather got it while he worked for New York telephone Corp. Thanks for your reply and the later photo
    Any day of hunting, whether good or bad is better than not hunting at all
