The plastic Regents came in during the early '60s as they had the later style keywork. The wooden Regents had the dreaded die cast Mazak keys and were the earlier design with short and symmetrical C#/G# key, smooth LH F/C touchpiece and two trill key guides.

This B&H 1-10 (see link below) is definitely plastic being made from phenolic resin or Bakelite as you can see the very shiny finish, but also the slight irregularities on the surface. If it was wood, chances are it wouldn't be that shiny (although they were when new) nor would it be jet black.

The wooden ones would also have metal tenon rings and the barrel would be barrel-shaped instead of that hourglass/waisted shape.

Later Regents were made from ABS resin - that was the same thing with Bundy, Vito and Yamaha plastic clarinets as they were first made with the more dense Bakelite then changed to the much lower density ABS resin in the '70s.
