This telephone has been totally stripped down and rebuilt after each part has been cleaned and polished. I have fitted a very best quality all British manufactured hand plaited braided handset cord, an electronic microphone and a GPO specification round plastic line in cord with a UK telephone plug socket. It has a genuine GPO No12 enamel faced alpha numeric dial face and stainless steel finger dial. The numbers and letters are faded in places and if you want to replace with a perfect plastic one the option is in the check out. The handset is dated 1954 and the base 1953. The body of the telephone has some slight whitening to the rear and the drawer strip is a little whiter. Only minor things otherwise un damaged. The telephone has been set up to work correctly on a special line simulator and then tested on our own BT land line. This telephone has been set up to allow it to work on both cable and copper wire systems. This is a wonderful example and ready to simply plug in and go. I can make a dial label with your own information at no extra charge.
