Quote from: TelePlay on July 11, 2022, 06:59:14 PMThe photo isn't the best. Do I see a break in the finger wheel (red circle) or is it an optical illusion?
Quote from: FABphones on July 12, 2022, 03:52:57 AMZoomed in, hopefully might be optical, that curved item to rear may be throwing a reflection? Fingers crossed!Great find and really well spotted. Looking forward to seeing more when it arrives.Want to see photos of what other goodies are in the box too please.
Quote from: kleenax on July 12, 2022, 07:48:29 AMIt's a Type 21 AE dial. Yes, commonly known as "Mercedes" because of the card holder style. Just the card holder is worth what you paid.Need parts for it? I have them ;-) I have removed the card holders from most of these since it has to come off to work on the dial.
Quote from: FABphones on July 20, 2022, 01:22:26 PMEmail Steve Hilsz, if anyone can help with the Mercedes dial, he can.Looks like there is a T for a payphone, someone will likely want one of those. The GTE sign might be required (is it metal or plastic).One man's junk and all that...
