    Sorry about the sideways pictures. They werent that way on my screen. Im trying to restore the phone (but not to working condition. Just for looks) The phone is from Nebraska. 1. There are no identifying marks other than an almost worn out decal or stamp in picture 2. The bottom of the logo is on the right and if you enlarge it you can see a white design and unreadable letters underneath. 2. The shelf is held by a sliding hinge rather than a bracket. 3. picture #4 is the top. Did something cover that electrical connection? 4. The screw in mouthpiece is missing. What kind/size of replacement would this take. 5. The receiver is missing. What style would that take? Thanks so much. Im having fun with this.

      The old logo is a LM Ericsson of Stocklolm, Sweden, the company had a factory for a short period of time in New York. you can locate these parts through Phoneco or The olde Telephone Company there both on line

      Thank you so much! I have looked and looked for that logo and found nothing. Now, the electrical connection at the top of the phone...was that left visible or is there some kind of cover I need to get to hide it?

      I've never seen a cover on any brand.

      No cover was used on this lighting arrester, The only cover I have seen is on a North Electric top loader.

      Great. Thanks. So that is a lightening arrester. Good to know. You all have been a big help.
