This telephone has been stripped down and rebuilt after each part has been cleaned and polished. The colour is perfect and un-faded. There is not much to say in regards to condition because it wonderful. I have fitted a very best quality red braided hand plaited all British manufactured handset cord, an electronic microphone and a GPO specification 3 meter long round plastic line in cord with a UK telephone plug socket. The handset is marked 164-56 and the base is marked 57. The dial is a GPO No10 with stainless steel finger dial. This telephone has been fully tested on both a special line simulator and our own BT telephone line. I can fit a dial label with your own information at no extra charge.
