Bakelite magazine colors….

454 Views 7 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  Edward Tinker
Since I started collecting I have always like the Bakelite “BW” magazines. Over the years I have noticed various colors in the mag bases, assumably due to inconsistent mixes in the process of making them. Here is a picture in normal lighting and one with a bright LED flashlight, as you can tell the brown ones really stand out with the LED. I really like the brown bases, two of them are on non marked mags the other is a regular FXO. Feel free to post pictures of yours as well!

I have an unmarked tube with a brown base as well, wonder if there is some connection there

I’m in desperate need of some BW mags.
Hi , once you have at least 25 posts you can post an add in the “want to buy “ section. But you can’t see it until you have 25 posts 😊
