[Boatanchors] [ARC5] Unusual BC-221

  Now, I have a question. There is an experiment I always wanted to try if I ever found a still boxed Bc221 or LM.
Is it still accurate? Can you check it WWV perhaps or a well calibrated crystal calibrator to see if it still agrees with the book?
First, how close is the crystal calibrator before making any adjustments to it, and then after setting the crystal calibrator 
how closely does the book match. I had always been amazed by the precision of many instruments made during WWII.

This unusual BC-221 followed me home from a hamfest a few years ago. The
guy practically begged me to take it.

I just got it out of storage a few days ago.

I have never seen one like this and don't find any model numbers on it.

I did have it on the bench and it works.

Attached are some pictures.


Anyone seen one like this? Comments?

Tnx and 73,
