Mystery phone in a crate?
« on: May 28, 2018, 04:58:09 PM »
This is on eBay, I can't make out what it is, pics are quite dark.
I can see it is in a crate or wooden box.

Anyone here got any idea?
And is it worth 700?

looks like my dad's first cell phone  ;D

Might have been an early "portable" battery set or a radio phone?

It's a Tele No 222 demonstration phone - details: http://www.britishtelephones.com/t222.htm
I have seen them for sale before in better condition and for considerably less money!

Ah-ha. Thanks. Unlikely I would have found that info (even though I do visit that website).
Much better photo, I can actually see what is in that box.
Good to know about it and interesting, but now I know what it is, it's not the phone for me.

Cheers.

So, it is an early European Teletrainer! The one on the website is very nice. I like how they did the wiring. Easy to follow.
