"I seem to recall my AW-15's have the red felt pads to polish the silver contacts when changing SW bands. I know my AW-23's do. Been too long since restoring my late 12 tube DELUXE AVC to remember."

"My all wave 23 coil wheel has two felt strips. They are placed between the contact strips opposite each other. "

"The felt strips are for cleaning the contacts.  I believe they were included on all AW23 coil wheels.  Your example is the first I have seen where the felt strips are not opposite each other. Norman"

"Thank you Norman.  With your provided information, seems we can perhaps date these modifications and chassis repair to 1936.  An opinion and merely speculation form the facts already on the table:  This set was purchased in…"

"Part 3 - As mentioned previously, the "rage" in late 1928 and into 1929 was for the "all-electric" set - meaning a radio that could be plugged in to an outlet and require no batteries or other connections except for an antenna.…"
