That's a really nice sign.
To me it looks genuinely old, but I'm no expert on these things.
A pressed sign is a lot more cost and effort to make than a flat one, so you'd need to be sure of a lot of sales if you were reproducing these. The various paint marks around the edge suggest some age too.

Hopefully more learned members from across the pond will be able to give you a more definitive answer.

This is the info given:

* Raised letters and raised Bell (these have been pressed from the underside).
* Measures approximately 11 inches square. (28cm).

Is this real or a repro? If real, where would it have been displayed?

Seller wants $85 ish.
Thanks for any info.  :)

Since your space is limited, I can see why you only want the  very hard to find  and ultra hard to find clear sets.
That shows restraint. 
JMO,
Jim S.

The space in the basement is getting tight, but I still have the garage. That wasnít in the plan wanting to get into clears, it just happened that way. The hard to find and the ultra-hard to find clears just seem to find me. I just seem to be in the right place at the right time.  :)

 I doubt Iíll ever catch up to you Jim. You are the King of Clears.

Jim:  Thanks for the response.  I was HOPING that wasnít the cause, but Iíll have to suck it up and rewire to see if that fixes it. Will have to wait til tomorrow.

If you got the full pack of info with the controller, you should be able to get it to work.
The key is to have phone components and wiring the same as they were when the phone was in service.
As you noticed, the controller can be used as a diagnostic tool. Fix the first problem and try again. the controller will show the next problem if any.
Good-Luck,
Jim S,

The diagram shows a break in the red wire that goes from the subset to the phone, but I assumed that was in error and should have showed continuity in that wire.

Tom,
Don't assume errors on Stan's controller information. Assume he is right and proceed accordingly.

Thanks Guys,

It took 7 weeks to lay my eyes on the real phone and the anticipation over the weeks was hard. I had never seen it in person, I had only seen the one picture he had emailed to me. (below) Then last week he sent an email saying I could pick it up at the Belleville facility on the 15th.

There won't be a tax write off for me as the money went to Avaya's fundraising team and they pass it forward by purchasing snowsuits for kids. They wanted the $100.00 for the phone and I added the extra $50.00 on my behalf as it was a very worthy cause.


Jeff, I'm not going to push my luck with my wife. It took me a while to get them into the basement from the garage. That was only because I had to clean out that room that we had been using as a storage room for the last 10 years.

I'm still able to move things around to make others fit. I did find a spot for the Avaya, right next to the clear NT Solo engineering sample.
