    fortapache
    (2840 items)

    Picked this up at the Rose Bowl Flea Market. It can receive calls but obviously can't dial out as it has no dial. Note that it was modified to plug into a modern phone jack.
    The handset is metal with bakelite mouth and earpiece.
    The desk phone is Western Electric model manufactured around 1929/1930. The number on the base is the drop location on a manual switchboard.

    Thank you very much ttomtucker for the additional information.

      That sword will get it's own show and tell eventually. I was told it is English. And there is a trick to removing it from the scabbard but I am not telling just yet.
