Russ, if you examine the design of the toy closely, especially the front of the handset carriage, it looks like they took the contour straight from the AE 80!  8)

I do see the resemblance to the AE 80.

Still rings today!  Made by the "The Steel Stamping Co. Lorrain Ohio"  Its a toy about 3/4 the size of a 500 set.

I just sent one of these to my brother in California. since the market has recovered these are selling for no less than $50.00! (even unrestored!) I have a bunch of 302's, some 304's, 306's, some 207's and the matching 357's to them... and even a 302AA (pull the listen) and they all work and are all in my collection!

Yes, I have a few Liechs, too large for what I want.
it does need a magneto inside.

Are you looking for a LB phone with a built in magneto? Did you see Doug Rose's Leich magneto phone?

I am hoping to have the phone just make calls. I don't have any interest in the coin function. Any advice on cleaning/improving the 8-pin connection between the housing and the board itself?

I'm not an expert,but I'd bet if you simply expoxied a 425b network to the base, and wired in a matching bell ringer from a 500 set, wired it all in, it would work fine.

Auction Talk / Re: Guidelines for “outing” under-the-radar auctions ?
« Last post by Dan/Panther on April 15, 2019, 09:07:46 PM »
Auction contest is OK in my book. They are normally high end phones nothing hidden. No deal expected. No homework to do.
I mean the phone like Kenton won, was most likely missed by 90 % of the lookers, because the didn't see anything unusual. That is when I don't the anyone should post those. And besides, WHY would you post a phone that you think is valuable, just to create a higher winning bid, maybe above yours, OR if you don't want the phone, then ignore. If you don't want it, WHY ruin it for someone else ?

Hi Howard
I have a few common phones I was given/bought ,  they work, and they are players, not diamonds.
I have a small collection, and these are just not what I want in the lineup.
At least, not so many. I am a 1 of each kind of collector, no space for lots.
Most of my collection consists of older phones.
I have a 5 ext. Pony Board, and need a Local Batt phone for the Operator.
I need the smallest footprint I can find. And it can be a frankin phone.
In fact, I prefer it! It fits with the rest of my collection.
The Big one is a beaut. just too big for me to display properly. and it is LB.

That screw is supposed to keep the pin that the hook rotates on in place
