Look for "Made in China" everywhere on the mic you can, maybe behind the battery.
All D104 Eagles had chrome bases, in fact the whole thing was chrome. None of them had an outside volume control.
Sort of why they were call "Silver."
The TUG-8 and the TUP-9 stands.
The TUG-8 just has the chicken-choker push-to-talk switch. Some of the older TUG-8 mics don't have a built-in preamp and are high impedance mics. The most common TUG-8 mics have the same mic element as the Silver Eagle - except for the older TUG-8 mics. Their element is a high impedance element and that mic was designed for tube radios of the 1960's and early 70's.
The TUP-9 has the chicken-choker AND a bar on the base of the mic for push-to-talk operation. There is no difference between a black base TUP-9 and a Silver Eagle - other than the chrome and the Eagle emblem. They both use the very same mic element and preamp too. Same is true for the Gold Eagle I think.
Now, the Night Eagle is a TUP-9 stand/mic element but uses a different preamp and has a factory installed roger beep too.
They also made a ceramic element for the D-104 mic that looked and sounded different that the stock crystal element. I fergits the model number of that mic element ATT. It was used mostly for single side band (SSB) use. TO my ear, there isn't too much difference between the way either of them sound on SSB.
Any TUG-8 mic that has a volume knob on the top of the mic has been altered. Prolly just a TUG-8 stand and the mic gain knob has been put on the outside of the mic for ease of adjustment.
I have a few of those myself.
It's called a "custom". I have one with the original Astatic label on it.
