First, I apologize for not being more specific regarding the coils.


All eight National plug-in coils are black crinkle with handles.  Most have
the two charts fastened behind a clear plastic cover with small screws
through a metal frame.  Since they are black I suspect they fit the older
HRO receivers.  Several frames and plastic covers are missing.


None of the coils have any markings on the aluminum covers.  They look like
they may have been cleaned.
