From an old timer give MAG the brass ring. That is a Delco oscillator coil that was used in GM auto readios '37-'40. Unlike later auto radios that utilized permeability tuning the early car radios used a tuning capacitor making it necessary to have a local oscillator coil which was a "plug-in". Some of the older Buick and Packard radios of this era had two tuned RF stages and utilized things such as a "running board" and "trunk lid" antenna. I realize I have dated myself. Tom.
