Post-War Western Electric 302, Circa 1946

Post-War Western Electric 302, Circa 1946

The post-war Western Electric 302s are characterized by a black plastic housing, and an updated dial that ran more smoothly and quitely. After WW-II production of the model 302 resumed, only this time the original painted zinc-alloy used for the housings was replaced by black thermoplastic (Tenite). Although Tenite was used on some color 302s before the war starting in 1941 (See Pekin Red model 302), the standard black models used metal housings up until telephone production was suspended due to the material requirements for WW-II (See Pre-War model 302). Other than the differences in housing material and the dial, the post-war 302 is identical to the pre-war 302.
