These models (February 1951 to summer 1951) are known as "No Casters". February 1951 "No Caster" : Fender decal with "Broadcaster" cut off.Starting in the summer of 1951, Fender adopted the name "Telecaster" for this model, and started using new decals after all the old clipped decals were used. But be aware that Fender was a month or two ahead in making body parts. Steel bridge saddles till November 1950, then brass with flat bottoms. Summer 1951 Telecaster : After all cut "No Caster" decals used, "Telecaster" decals appear.
October 1950 Broadcaster : Ash body with Butterscotch Blond finish. Round button string tree (1st month models don't have one). White single layer vinyl pickguard replaces black pickguard.
Therefore, you can find No Casters with December 1950 neck dates, even though they didn't clip the decals and do final assembly till February 1951 (decal application was the last assembly step were always applied over the finish). Gradual use of phillips head screws replaces slot head screws (this change was not complete till 1953).
Making the body and neck (and dating them) was the first assembly step, and hence these dates can be a couple months before the instrument was finalized and shipped. Early 1954 Telecaster : Serial number on neck plate.
It was the same as a standard Tele except it came in three color sunburst, and the body is bound.
1960 Telecaster : Strings anchor thru the body again. 1963 Telecaster : 3 layer celluloid mint green pickguard on all models.
