It even looks like you could pick it up not far from home...
42 Pounds/ 50 / 55 $ US for the international community  8)
That's OK for an item in that good condition.

Edit to add, it has the very special Oslo dial numbering - it's easier to deal with than the Swedish version. At least the 5 and the 0 are in the right position. Btw. does any VOIP device has settings to accept these special numbering without re-calculating the numbers? I guess not.

Dialgizmo copes with that.
It may still be an issue, the first 7A exchanges had shorter breakes, and one extra long last break.  Do not know how this dial is, the dial is newer than the phone.

I did not buy it, I have a pretty similar one with the original dial, mine is the 1921 version.
