This is a fabulous telephone and bell set with no issues. If your a collector and want the best you can buy for your collection then this one would be for you. I have stripped it down and rebuilt it after each part was cleaned and polished. I have fitted very best quality hand plated braided cords and a genuine GPO 1956 Bakelite red connection block BT20/4 to a red round plastic line in with UK telephone socket. No damage or repairs to any parts. It is fully working and has been fitted with an electronic microphone to bring the speech quality up to modern standards. I can make a dial label with your information at no extra charge. If interested in purchasing this telephone you can call me to make an appointment and I will strip it down and go through it with you to set your mind at rest.
