Title: Let me introduce myself
Post by: Lacky30 on June 07, 2017, 09:45:40 PM
Hello everybody, my name is Lazar, or Lacky, and I came from Serbia. I have started to collect vintage rotary phones, from 1930s to 1980s, and for now, I have 30+ of them. I believe that many of you will explain to me more about them, because I am a beginner. Also I do not know the procedure of selling some of them at your auction.
Thanks again to accepting me at your site!
Sorry if my English is not perfect but I hope so that we understand each other :-)

Welcome, Lazar.  From what you wrote I see no reason to apologize for your English.  It's better than some native speakers I know.  However if I had posted the message you did I would have titled it "Please allow me to introduce myself...", quoting from the Rolling Stones song "Sympathy for the Devil" from the 1960s just because the phrase still sticks in my mind, not because I feel any camaraderie with the narrator of the song .  :-)

Welcome Lazar!

Do you live in Serbia or are you in North America or elsewhere? Are your phones primarily from Serbia? Someone will have some idea as to who manufactured them and possible model numbers. Pictures of the base and inside of one or two of them will be of interest to us!

Thank you all for the nice words! I live in Serbia, and in my collection I have German Siemens telephones from 1930s-1950s, former Yugoslavian Iskra telephones from today Slovenia from late 1940s-1980s, and Pupin telephones from today Serbia from 1950s to 1970s. 90% of them is still functional!  You can see one of them... One friend told me that it is made in may, 1931, in Berlin...
