Handset dated 1948

This is a beautiful example of a GPO 312L with drawer. The call exchange button would have been used on a shared line and is now just for show. The handset is dated 1948. It has been stripped down and rebuilt after each part has been cleaned and polished. The dial has also been rebuilt and the contacts cleaned and tested. Then set up on a special line simulator to allow to work on both BT and cable networks. I have fitted an electronic microphone and best quality D shape plastic line in with a UK telephone plug socket. Please note that these are genuine GPO telephones from the 1930s-50s and although I restore to the highest of standards they have been in use for over 60 years and can never be described as mint. It has a genuine GPO No10 dial with a rare enamel alpha numeric dial face. This has some cracking where it cannot be seen unless dialling s seen in the last photograph. This can be replaced at no cost if you prefer to have a perfect plastic one. This can be changed in the checkout process f required I can make a dial label with your information at no extra charge. Your own information can be entered in at the check out system.
