potrero, 6 years ago Nice - like the "E" handset and a "country" dial (no numbers).
keith, 6 years ago I'm not an expert but it has the wrong dial . #2AB was used on 50-51 AL's
(dial candlesticks) . It is a alphanumeric dial with both numbers and letters
which was used in town. What you have is a #2AA numeric.
Also A-1 did not use #2A ,B or E dials. They used a #2G or a#2H which has an extra terminal so the handset could be used.
What I'm saying is nice phone ( I built a replica) but it can't work with that dial.
ttomtucker, 6 years ago They James if your going to have a phone in your collection, W.E. A-1 with the 2AB dial is one of them to have. Nice phone
