In all the years of dealing and collecting I have never come across a 1959 metal dialled 706 with the grey cloth cords. I thought it was a myth but here it is. It looks to be un-issued as the base and internals are immaculate. The transmitter and receiver are both marked 1959 and dial is marked 1958. It was made by Siemens and has GPO markings on the capacitor. This is in my collection and not converted although it could be done at no cost if required.
