German wwII trunk-phone on ebay Amtsanschließer 33

This Amtsanschließer 33 seems to be a good buy.

I have one already, so I don't need it. They are hard to get.

So what is it. It is a regular telephone with terminal screws for the line, and a jack for connecting a Magneto line to the POTS
In other words it is the trunk unit and the dial  used together with the field exchange. And of course it works great as a telephone, no ringer, but a load buzzer.

Look at this picture:
A standard stereo jack-plug are slightly to short, but works OK. Ring and Tip to magneto line.
(One like this, works perfect after removing a little of the plastic to make it slightly longer)
