    I know it's been done to death but can't find a definitive match.
    T top bobbin.
    PAF stamp.
    no date stamp.
    plastic spacers.
    rough cast mag ?

    Conflicting info out there with no date stamp but plastic spacers with T top.
    Some say early Shaws using left over T bobbins but others say it must have a date stamp.

    Any help please.
    I also see a white lead wire.

    no doesn't look like it.
    but one thing that looks different is the base of the pole screws has a gouge out of them.
    Don't know if thats relevant.

    The screws are not original, however, two white spacers and roughcast magnet indicates an early Shaw.

    HTH,
