A great British piece of working history.

This is a wonderful black GPO 1/232L with drawer. It has been totally stripped down and rebuilt after each part has been cleaned and polished. The handset is dated 1957 and it has a lovely GPO No12 with an alpha numeric dial face. It has been fitted with a very best quality hand plaited all British manufactured braided handset cord and a hand made by me quality "D" shaped black plastic 2 metre line in cord with a UK telephone socket fitting. It is fitted with an electronic microphone to bring the speech quality up to modern standards. The dial has then been oiled and set up to the correct speed and the contacts adjusted to operate correctly. To do this properly it has been set up on a special line simulator test unit until it met the requirements of the machine. It was then tested on our own BT line. This is a genuine GPO telephone that is over 60 years old. So although I have cleaned, polished and stripped it down, all the parts they are old and my not be mint perfect. If that's what you want please buy a modern telephone. I can fit a dial label with your information at no extra charge.
