    DJ, can you provide any more info on the two calls in the middle? They do not have the trademark number on them but have an emblem. Are they later? If so about what date?
    Thanks

    Do they have some world logo on them? I know Ryan Graves has some of those.

    World Logo was used from 1956-1958. DJ can probably tell you more about why they used it and what it meant.

    Salt substance is probably sulfur use in rubber mixes. Helps to cure it.

    The two calls in the middle are new style D-2's, those were injected molded plastic that was the birth of the new-style D-2. They were made between 1965 and 1958, and that was there new logo so they put it on the calls. The only problem was the stamping dies were flat and they had to roll the shell to get the name and logo on the shell. They had problems with the long roll not printing very well thats why it only lasted a short time. Also if you noticed the exit hole in the tonal plug was big that lasted about 5 years and they went to a smaller hole

    Don,

    I have a few of the new style inserts that have the "bowl" in the tone channel. Never really knew what the intended purpose of it was. Thanks for the insight:tu

    The hole in the New-Style D-2 channel was put there to help get rid of the spit from blowing the call to help the reed from sticking. As most of you know it didnt work!! In the late 1990's Olts quit doing that.
