I recently purchased this old wall phone and I am having a bit of difficulty identifying the year it was manufactured. My research to date tells me that this was made by Holtzer-Cabot. The phone has a 5 Bar Magneto, each bar marked with ( H-C) which I believe indicates Holtzer-Cabot. The writing pad can be positioned up or down to suit the user. It appears that most, if not all the parts inside the "Cathedral Top Box" are where they should be and there is no evidence of any previous major alterations done to this phone. The phone does have some small issues, one screw missing on the key lock retainer plate, a minor bit of wood cracking around two of the mounting holes of the main box, and one of the wires which are embedded across the back of the box has had a repair made on it. I would certainly appreciate any information that could be rendered regarding this phone.
Thanks & Regards
