Thanks for the fast reply, it does seem a bit odd.

Some parts look ok, others not so. No markings (that I can see) where they would usually be found. Am wondering if it is a bitsa, or a repro made from some genuine parts.

Not a GPO phone. Possibly ATM as it has an ATM dial and transmitter.

Is it for sale?

I agree with Jack, It looks like an ATM phone, made in Liverpool, probably for a private system somewhere. I've got their private version of a 300 series with exactly the same dial and dial card, which came out of a factory in Loughborough.
Call me on C*net 0246 81 290 from the UK
or (+44) 246 81 290 from the rest of the world.
