Stomberg~Carlson wallphone - opinions?
« on: May 12, 2009, 01:27:33 PM »
I found this the other night when I got home from work. This model is near the top of my "wanted" list. I think this guy's price is a bit steep and I have made 2 offers so I know he wants his asking price of $49.50. What do yall think?

No, it seems like a Hotel phone of some type. Seems to be missing the ringer assembly which means it uses a buzzer or single bell ringer. It's not in good shape, nor am I certain this can work with the current telephone standard. I'd pass for that much.

EDIT:WHOOOPS, forgot to enter the "p" in pass :o

It's a standard Stromberg wall phone, but complete examples generally go for around that price.  Even if you had a ringer for it, I think I'd pass because of the hole drilled in it for the pushbutton.
