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 alpha numeric dial face and stainless steel finger dial. The handset and base are dated 1956. The body and handset has a very faint hairline cracks as shown in the photographs. It cannot be seen easily and took some time to photograph to show up. 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.
