 This came on eBay Friday night just as I had logged on after coming back from Dinner. BIN for $50, I have a junker, if I can find it :o as it is empty inside.

For now it will display in my phone room with parts I had on hand. The AE Bulldog didn't look right so I went with an WE until I can find a Chrome AE transmitter

It came today packed to survive anything. Took forever to free it!! I have bought from them before and they are wonderful.

A LOT of work went into the Power coat and Lettering, very Professional....Doug

It seems a little old for it, but this looks like a dial for one of those Designer Phones.  The Y and BL are the pulsing contacts, and the other four are the two sets of dial switch contacts.  If using a 425 B or E network, you can wire these the same as 7 or 9 series dials, just ignore one of the sets of dial switch contacts.  There is a way to use these in a phone that uses a subset.  Perhaps another member remembers how.

I still see them occasionally on E-Bay, so you should be able to find one. Hope you find one.  Good luck to you.

See https://www.telephonecollectors.info/index.php/search?q=501-162-100+i7

Check out Fig. 5, diagram C, which matches the terminals on your dial. Consult Table D to see some uses for a 6-type dial with the 5C schematic layout.

Quote from: TelePlay on Yesterday at 11:56:08 AMYou dodged Opa Locka, but I have to say, I have had several south Florida shipments go through Opa Locka undamaged in less than a day - guess they really did clean up their operations in that distribution center . . . 😉

This package is being handled by DHL, not USPS.  I don't think that I have ever seen DHL delivering to houses around here, but perhaps they do.  Their site does say that I should expect delivery today.  We will have to wait and see.

I just received a notification from DHL stating "Shipment is out with courier for delivery", so it could be that the phone will arrive today.  It went through US Customs in Miami quite quickly.  Stay tuned...

Quote from: poplar1 on Yesterday at 10:34:24 AMPart of the kit of parts installed in customer owned housings. You owned the housing but paid rent forever on the inside parts, which remained Telcom property.
While you were posting Dave, I was typing, LOL! Thank you just the same though!
Still wondering why the EXTRA terminal, have any idea Dave?
