Quote from: FABphones on October 10, 2020, 11:34:31 AMDial looks like a #10 apart from the 'O OPERATOR 0' (not in hand at the moment to look at reverse). Can anyone give me any history on why this was so?
Quote from: tubaman on October 11, 2020, 04:25:53 AM@FABphones,I would say it is one of the earlier types as Jack Ryan suggested. Not too common to see certainly.The different (known) types that were available are here - https://www.britishtelephones.com/labels.htm - yours is a Label No 150 by the looks of it.

Quote from: FABphones on October 15, 2020, 05:06:01 AMCould you just clarify how it is clear please, because (to our almost certain knowledge) only black were factory produced? Or because of the paint finish? Or other?
