This one retains its original genuine long line in cord with a curly section. I have fitted it with an essential electronic microphone and it works beautifully. I rarely get these unusual colours and am always searching. This one won't be here long I promise you and so please don't hesitate. It has been stripped cleaned and polished. It has been fully checked on our test equipment and then on our own BT telephone line. I can make a dial label with your information. Please add in the notes to us on checkout what style of label either old or as this one has new.
