Eyeglass Style Transistor Hearing Aids: 1954-1990

Beltone "Salesman's Model" Eyeglass Hearing Aid

Beltone Electronics Corporation of Chicago, IL  made a number of salesman's (dummy) models of their current eyeglass hearing aids showing various designs and colors. The models shown here were from the period of the mid to late 1950s.

There are no markings on them to identify exactly which models they represent.

This is the front view of one such "dummy" model.
