If I were a bit closer I'd buy it.

The dial is OKI but I think the phone is more likely Siemens & Halske or Fuji Electric Co.

Me too, I thought I'd put it up for anyone that would think they needed it.

Why would the body not be OKI? Didn't OKI build these too?

Did they?

I haven't seen one and their history doesn't mention S&H as a source. S&H helped form Fuji and by that time, OKI was well established.

If the phone became an official post item and was manufactured by manufacturers other than the designer or official licencee then yes. But I don't know if that happened.

We have at least one member in the Atlanta area.  For $15, it looks like a deal.  I bought something similar a few years ago: forum link.

Fuji+Seimons= Fusi now Fujitsu.I think some parts on these sets were farmed out to other companies such as dials or transmitters. Have a stick with an NEC decal but dial is an OKI and the transmitter is a Toa.NEC was WEs Japanese affiliate.Toa still builds audio gear

I live near it.  Last night a woodland creature broke into my crawlspace in order to die.  After doing so, it wouldn't leave and it hid.  and died.  and began to emit horrible house filling smells.  I had to pay a wildlife extraction artist  to remove it.  It was an opposum and it cost me just about $300.00.  I will not be getting any phones for a bit.   :o
