This one has been totally stripped down and re-built after each part has been cleaned and polished. It has no fading or repairs and only an imperfection to the very rear as shown circled in one of the pictures. I have fitted it with a very best quality all British manufactured hand plaited braided handset cord, an electronic microphone and a red round plastic GPO specification line in cord with a UK telephone plug socket. It has been fully converted and set up on a special line simulator and then tested on our own BT land line. The handset is dated 1956 as is the base.This is a real gem of a telephone and so don't miss out if interested. I can make a dial label with your own exchange and number at no extra charge.
