Really cool! I wonder if this marble pattern is intentional as a marketing tool or something or if this is a mixture screw up. Definitely cool pieces for display. The plain black backing is boring IMO, though Cooper/Eaton uses blue now on their resi-grade switches IIRC.

To resist is to piss in the wind, anyone who does will end up smelling.

You could be right. I think it's a special order thing. I have a Leviton duplex outlet (without ground) with this pattern. My brother has a Monowatt (GE) duplex outlet with a dotted marble pattern as well.

I also wonder that same thing but I think it was part of the nature of plastics "way back when" it was harder to achieve a perfect mixture of the chemicals that make up the plastic, I believe bakelite was the name of those plastics that were used. I also have a couple of devices with the marble look.

Yeah I have seen blue and yellow backs on many residential grade devices, I personally hate residential grade anything (mostly the receptacles the switches seem OK but not my first choice if I need a replacement.

I have always wondered why the residential grade switches have the frame around the toggle whereas industrial or spec grade do not have the frame around the toggle.

I'm not sure about that, bakelite has been around for a LONG time and every one I've seen has had a flawless, even brown color. These are probably one of the last switches to have been made by bakelite before they started using plastic.

From what I've seen with residential grade switches and plugs, Hubbell uses yellow backs, Cooper uses blue backs, Pass & Seymour uses gray backs, and Leviton uses black backs.

The residential ones have the frame around the toggle because the toggle is smaller and they need to "beef" the size of it up so they can use the same plates as commercial/industrial grade switches. The smaller toggle is probably a cost-saving measure and perhaps an aesthetics thing too, since the "dead space" between the toggle and plate is minimal compared to full-bodied toggles. The commercial/industrial ones I think require the larger toggle to meet the heavier-duty standard for commercial and industrial grade switches.
