Hi I am new to this forum. Can someone please give me one piece of info on this recently purchased general electric model 2H08, known as the garcon? I do know that they were produced from 1937-1948, but is there a way to pin poiunt as to what year this one was made? Thank you 304095.png 304096.png

Well, the latest patent number 1768386 was granted June 24, 1930, but I see little else to give a clue. I will move this to Electric Horology in case someone might have a better idea.

I take it back. The design patent, 118835, which I missed at first, is actually later. It was granted February 6, 1940. So, some time after that, I presume.
