Telegrafverket Telegraf Verket Ivory Red Numbers
« on: October 20, 2018, 12:16:24 PM »
I had been looking for one of these for  awhile, but they always go out of site. I saw this with about 12 hours to go and only 6 people had looked at it.  ??? I put in the starting bid of $29.99 and would check in the morning from work. I forgot to check but the $29,99 did it!  ;D

This is reverse-able, can either be a wall mount or a desk set. It has the always missing adapters.

Really nice Ivory color with no fades.

No chips cracks or missing pieces. Nice cloth cords and a reverse dial with red numbers!

Got it yesterday and I will clean it up tomorrow.

It works! Really nice ring $29.99 plus 13.34 shipping.....Doug

Love it when a min bid gets a desired piece!....I have had it happen only a couple of times...feels good!

After all we deserve one every once in a while, don't we?

Congrats, Doug!

Congratulations! I grew up with the black version.  These were just made in a relatively small numbers.  Some had an error in the way the ringer was configured, the ringer coils was soldered in parallel, and not in series.  (It should be in series)


If you intend to use it it may have high REN load depending on just that error mentioned. Normally Less than 1.5

The only more rare version of these are the one with a transistorized hearing aid amplifier.  (just rare, not expensive)
