Looks like you've started out with some very nice and interesting devices! That Howe bell is pretty cool, have never heard of that brand before :). Obscure brand names and their 'forgotten' stories are some of the most fascinating.

BG-12L pull (gift from a technician I know)

EST:
1250-0 coded pull

Simplex:
2902-9207 vibrating chime

Wheelock:
SafePATH 4 voice evacuation panel (I haven't tested it yet)

Wow, that is in really good condition! Usually you see BG-6's with scratches and lots of paint from the letters worn off. Nice find!

There is a little bit of paint missing, but it is in good condition considering what I paid for it :lol:
