Offered today is the Western Electric 633A, the Saltshaker, 1936. There is no Altec label which indicates to me that this mic predated Altecs distribution of WE stock after the antitrust action. This comes with its original stand and cord. I wasn't able to get a response using alligator clips on the connector, so I opened it up and tested the connections directly and got a good response. There are some scratches on the mic and the chrome stand has some oxidation. Otherwise the condition is good considering it's 72 years old.
Please review this excellent site for specifications:
The only postal option offered is the United States Postal Service, Priority or Express mail.
International postage will likewise be provided solely by the USPS but surface mail options are not provided as the delay in delivery often results in disputes and anxiety on both ends. For all international orders using Express Mail, the buyer must supply a phone number.
I have added a service charge to the postage. This is because the shipping calculator has consistently underestimated the actual shipping. It is my policy to refund the excess shipping if I have overcharged. I usually try to ship using a fixed rate box. On occasion, the rate for a priority box is less than the fixed rate and in that instance, I will likewise refund the difference. I do not charge for handling. The actual shipping will be listed on the label so you may verify that you are only paying the actual cost.
