Default 1939 deluxe headlight switch

Seated in the driver's seat can someone please let me know what the control dial positions are for turning from left to right?
Thanks in advance...Frank.

It's been awhile since I had one of these, but isn't it one position counterclockwise for low beams and two positions counter-clockwise for high beams?

Tubman, by 39 Ford (started in 38) had gone to a floor hi/lo headlight switch. The column switch was just Parking lights and Headlights.

Ya, I think 36 and 37 were fairly similar, change started in 38 and by 40 the light control switch was on the dash.
