Jydsk Telefon Aktieselskab

1920s Phone from Denmark.
Looking for information on this telephone.

Is it worth collecting for $50.00 CDN?

These are the only pictures I of it.

I collect retrocomputers
Ash was browsing Facebook marketplace and stumbled acrossed some Wyse Serial terminals,  I thought okay Ill get 3 of them to hang off various PBXes and stuff around here. 

Well the seller said nope you gotta buy em all otherwise they are being scrapped,  Im like well I should do my part and rescue them from the landfill.   2 trips later in my F150,  I have 55 Terminals in my shop. 

So if anyone wants a serial terminal for a PBX or for other fun hacking purposes please let me know, 

I know i dont need 55 of the darn things.

Thanks.
Looks like it could be an N-546 - http://www.paul-f.com/North555.htm
 :)

As for brands - I collect any phone I like the look of.  ;D

Looks like it could be the N-546. I do collect other brands, but I don't have any of the North brand. About 80% of my collection is Northern Electric.

I do have a few British phones.  :)

I really couldn't tell you, I don't collect that brand. But check Paul F's site for some information on it.
Thanks.

Thanks Duffy - I didn't look that closely at the photos. I've changed the thread title to reflect.
Is it a rare one?

That is a North Electric, not a Northern Electric phone. The seller made the same common mistake a lot of others make. They see the word North and think it's Northern.

What model is this, as they don't seem to appear too often?
If it wasn't for postage and import duty I'd probably buy it.
