Hi all:

I have a 1931 Ware Electronics Model B-1 Bantam.
It is missing the original speaker and output transformer--which I am pretty sure was a ROLA. Every example on Radio Museum, Radio Attic, Worthpoint, etc. shows a ROLA branded speaker.

I can't tell the model number or the field coil spec from the pictures that are out there on the internet and there is NO information on.the schematic (Rider's 2-2 Ware).

Would someone who owns one of these neat sets please look in the back of it and give me the ROLA model number and the field coil resistance? Both should be stamped on the left and right sides respectively of the metal piece behind the field coil.

The speaker currently mounted (but not wired in) is a Jensen Model D-11. Field coil and output transformer are both good in it.

I would like to eventually find an original ROLA speaker and output tranny for this set--but at least with the specs I might be able to see if the existing replacement I have will work as a substitute until I can find an original.

Pics attached.

Thank you in advance for your time.
