Default 52-Set Microphone Capsules

While looking through the 52-Set Manual again this afternoon, in particular at the spare parts listed in it, it struck me the headset gear used with this wireless is fully compatible with the 19-Set equipment and that got me taking a deeper dive into my 19-Set spare bits boxes. And there they were.

2 spare Microphone Capsules, PC 90617C (ZA/C 00082) used in the standard microphones. Both are in good working order. One shows the remains of a red patch on the back centre with what I think is the Philco stamp. The other only shows a faint circular inspection stamp with a two digit number in the middle.

More digging, and up surfaced a Capsule, Microphone NEPP 59450, RCA 118-262-1 (ZA/C 00085). It has an orange date stamp on the back of it ‘5/44’, and near the front centre is stamped ‘W.E.Co’, which I am guessing means this capsule was made by Western Electric Company. This is the spare capsule for the Microphone, Hand, No. C3.
