Judging from the bids this is popular. What do the letters mean for the red buttons?

Ohhhh, I want one of those, but that is pricey.  Does anyone know if one will be available at the Southern California phone show on June 6th?

I found mine on CL for $50. Didn't realize how popular they are...

Now to figure how to configure it for 2-wire service...

Plus, there are several good Bell Labs Record articles in the TCI Library. Search for BLR Autovon.
