Not sure what to call this one..... only $36.99.  Just think how much you'd pay to buy all of these items separately...... ;)

It is on sale because it has 2  9's and no 0.

I took a closer look and the zero is there beside the 6, It just looks like a 9. What an odd place to put it.  :o

Oh, if it were available in the late 1970's a friend would want it for sure if it has a "spare 9"! Pretty certain that I have posted this before. I was involved in replacing the PBX where he worked and I recall him being excited with the change to push button phones as he said he was "burning out" the "9" on his dial phone and that calling his girlfriend with a rotary dial just takes way too much time. They dialled 9 for a trunk but that got them out of their PBX into the university Centrex where they again dialled "9" to get out to the CO. Then his girlfriends phone number was something like 939-9939. In reality he more likely burned out the 9 on his new push button phone than on his old rotary dial phone!
