This telephone has been stripped down and re built after each part has been cleaned and polished. It is a superb example and in as good a condition as you will find. It is fitted with a very best quality hand plaited all British manufactured braided handset cord, an electronic microphone and a GPO specification colour coded round plastic line in cord with a UK plug socket. The handset, base and chassis are all marked 1957. It has the genuine GPO button switch mechanism and is all set up working perfectly to switch the bells on and off. Please see the pictures and video to see how nice this one is. If you want this to operate as an answer only telephone now or in future then there is no need to opt for the pulse to tone unit. However if you want it to continue to dial out after the big switch over from copper cable to Voip systems then please opt for the pulse to tone unit in the checkout. I can make a dial label with your information at no extra charge. Leave your label information in the box on the checkout form.
