Can you Identify this Handset
« on: March 09, 2015, 12:25:22 PM »
It was a mess in a box next to my workbench. It had been there for some time. It was so bad I tried fine steel wool and brasso as I was not sure it was bakelite....it is  ;D It cleaned up to look like new, but it appears to be missing some parts. It looks European to me, but what do I know....thanks....Doug

The letter O.B. are short for orts-batterie, or local battery. Unbeldi is absolutely right!
