All the parts are Northern Electric, except for the blue parts. Even though the H1 and 1955 date are stamped in white, it is believed that the stamps were added to a WE housing. The handset is marked Bell System made by Western Electric but the F1 and HA1 units are NE.

I am surprised at Mr Huckeby. The first picture of the auction was of the inside and I walked right by it. I would have bid more than it sold for...Doug
