RARE WESTERN ELECTRIC 596A Loud Speaking Telephone Speaker


Item History and Pricing
Information:
Brand: Western Electric
Original Description:
I am a collector of old telephones rather than early audio equipment. A friend picked up this speaker at the flea market and gave it to me for my collection.  Labeled " Telephone Speaker "  he thought it would fit nicely into my collection. It was to our huge surprise  discovering it's original use and exreme rarity.We agreed to put it on Ebay and into the hands of someone who would fully appreciate it.My research from past Ebay sales (May 16th 2014 ) tells me ...this 1930's tweeter was developed at Bell Labs for use in movie theaters but I'm sure knowledgable Audiofiles know much more than me. The only flaw appears to be an open "voice coil ".  I don't want to attempt any more investigation and will leave that to experts.
