AWG, double silk covered, double cotton covered.
Let me know the lengths you need and I'll check my gauges.
Gauge is not very important for coils, just might make a few turns 
difference if you are trying accurate inductance.
It's always best to overwind and adjust, if you don't have the exact form 
and wire spec'd.

Does anyone know where I could find the specs for vintage magnet wire?

I have been looking at some radio construction projects from the 1930's
and 1940's, and they call out wire types like #30 dsc, #20 dcc and so
on. I would like to know if that is single of multi-strand, what the
outer diameter is, and if the # corresponds to awg sizes.
