Like the originals the Neck pickup has a South polarity with a clockwise wind which makes it compatible with original Broadcaster / Tele  Bridge pickups from the 1950 through 1980 time period.

 

Some original Broadcaster neck pickups used AlNiCo 5 magnets which provided some additional twang and a bit more bite verses the AlNiCo 3 versions. They were also wound with less wire ie: 6.8K Ohms which provides a bit more clarity.
