So that change (and probably for other coil models as well) happend somewhere in the year 1952.

The Bosch sticker is the early type with just "BOSCH" on it, later it got "BOSCH", "6 Volt" and "GERMANY IMPORTE D'ALLEMAGNE".

Reviving this old thread.

I'm considering restoring this old blue coil, and running it on my Okrasa, but I can't figure out what it came on. Everything I see has the TK6 A3 as a black coil. Anyone have any info?

TE6A3 thread:

They are not blue though.

It looks like a date code of M.
M = 1956
