Please attach seller's last picture (#8): All the relays have been removed and all the wires cut. This is why you always need to see the inside of these. Most, like this one, have been gutted and are therefore just a movie prop. Might be worth $100 delivered.

Is it a 552.....which means Operators position for a PBX .... so not as desirable as a 551 freestanding PBX.
