Strowger Switch Identification?

Hi all!

I know, I know, Strowger is dead.

Yesterday in the mail I received a Northern Electric Strowger
switch unit, with the following numbering inside:

ED3286-31 GD WD NE-585D

Does anyone have the specs for this switch? I suspect it is a
connector -- would this be correct?

The contact bank is missing, and the wipers have been all but
destroyed by being shipped unprotected, but even if it is unuseable,
it would still make a nice visual display unit for the museum if I can
find a stand for it ...
