I wondered that too. Based upon a reading of Wentworth and Fink plus the preponderance of 1952 tubes, I don't see now how it could be a dot sequential set using three-state communitator circuitry. However, I couldn't resolve one way or the other their flirtation with phase alternation in that time period. So, it probably uses equaband quadrature circuitry for chroma, bypassed luma (of course), in 1952 perhaps a nonstandard color subcarrier frequency, and maybe PAL-like circuits.

My two cents.
