Just one of those things that nag at me when I can't sleep at night or don't have anything better to think about.  Has anyone noticed the relative frequency that GE Forms AB, AC, and AD (1922/23/24) 12" brass bell oscillators show up on eBay and at Fan Fairs and in the wild?  It seems to me that AB is about 10%, AC I haven't seen, and AD is the rest.  I have a hard time believing it was original production numbers by year, so maybe its just my imagination?

I have one Form AC from 1923, 12" and a 16" Form AC AOU so two for two on Form AC.   I have not watched the Form letters closely to see the numbers of each that show up.

Steve,
Yeah, I probably spend too much time noticing or imagining that I notice oddities on eBay auctions, and the only reason I even started watching the AB/AC/AD thing was that I've got an un-restored AB that's so smooth and quiet I won't ever sell it.  Even thought about getting another, and that's when I started noticing a herd of ADs.  Now watch, there won't be another AD on eBay for years because I brought this up!
