Interesting, I looked it up and found this one:

?hash=item4b0a9e73cf:g:9f4AAOSwHsRYCPrV

or http://tinyurl.com/ztofbo2

Looking at the pictures I believe I recognize a brittle kind of plastic, and some cords not as soft flexible and long lasting as the real ones had.

On the other hand it may be one of the closest to POTS you may get just now.

Wow! Very interesting find! I wonder what the quality of one of these is like! Definitely not up to Western Electric standards!
