This is a reproduction that has been available from Phoneco and others for the last 30 or so years .The cap will look like a poor copy of a F1 cap.Made to take a standard rec capsule from a G type handset.Dont drop it, the molded in weight will break it in half

There is, or was, a Federal for sale on Ebay, but the price is little high.  Seller has it mislabeled - he's calling it a Milk Bottle.

Here's a photo of the Federal from eBay for reference. The "comparison" receiver NOT FOR SALE is on the left. The starting bid is/was $100.00 with free shipping.

Also, can anyone translate what's going on here: "this is a milk bottle receiver no chips or cracks very nice condition its complete I ship USPS priority mail with tracking number and insurance  not local pick up Thanks danneyboy-us. to let you know I used the other receiver to show the size difference Thanks  200.60 or best offer Thanks again"
