Default Re: Philco 444 variations?

When it came to examining my Peoples set it soon became evident it had been cobbled up from various bits and pieces. The cabinet is from a 333 battery set and the chassis from the model 296 wood cabinet version of the 444.
It's likely your set was assembled in the same manner as mine.
The 333 has a slightly larger cabinet and the chassis metalwork is totally different from that of the 444.
Most 333 sets come with three Mazda valves on MO bases but I've seen pictures of a 333 which has been equipped with valves which have the old British 7 pin base.
