7H139  The Talisman

These were originally produced without the Control-A-Tone knob, an alternate style dial and reset signal.  Later ones had no reset signal at all.  Early Talismans had a metal dogtag (the last model so equipped) but most had an orange sticker with the model info. For some reason, this was a very popular model

Here's mine after a complete refinishing.

 
 
Another of mine.  I only refinished the top of this one.  (The finish was 80% gone when I got it.)  Two obvious differences between this piece and the one above are the natural mahogany color and the underslung, coppery dogtag.  A less obvious difference is the beefier case grommets in the other piece.  This one has the "normal" style.
