Seller Listing Title:  "Western Electric Touch Tone Space Saver Telephone"
Condition:  "Used"
Condition Qualifier:  " - - - "

Listing Description:  "Estate sale find and I don't know anything about it. I took the front off around the buttons and found a date of 3-75 on the key pad. There is no receiver and there are no bells. It is dirty but a good cleaning will go a long way. Please see photos there are scrapes and nicks. The chrome hook switch is in pretty good shape and a good polishing will make it shine. I don't know if it works or not so this is sold as-is. -- It will be shipped very well protected."

Very rare item. Obviously the dial pad is a recent replacement being dated 1975. Would be interesting to see the inside date & parts.

Wasn't me but the list of past auctions that I keep with the phone images is a quick way to research part contests.
