This is a nice find. This telephone has been stripped down and re built after each part has been cleaned and polished. One of the best examples of a 1959 dated 705L and still retaining its GPO No12 dial. On stripping down I noted the internal parts are dated 1959 as is the receiver and microphone. I have fitted it with an electronic microphone and GPO specification round line in with a telephone socket. It has been converted and fully tested to work perfectly to both dial out and receive. I have kept the original microphone with the telephone in case a collector buys it. Note this even has the original dial label it came with which is a rare find in its self, the original feet which in the early days were very different tand also the very fat original handset cord in superb condition. This must be one of the best examples around. I can make a dial label with your information at no extra charge and of course send the original as well.
