Help me with this one (unknown phone)
« on: November 08, 2019, 07:16:44 AM »
Not an auction but on German eBay classifieds:
https://www.ebay-kleinanzeigen.de/s-anzeige/altes-antikes-telefon-kuhfuss-telefon-/1249311267-234-2751

What's THIS?
French plug, a handset that resembles of a German W28, French lettering but German looking fingerwheel and hex nut ...  ???
The seller names it a "Kuhfuss" (Cow's foot), but that would be a bavarian SA25, and is a different beast (also round though).

It is called ‘The Toad’.

I have a couple, cute little phones.  :)
That dial a bit later though.

Most of the toads I've seen have been gray in color.

Looks like it has sold. Did you buy it?

No, I didn't.
But good that it sold relatively quick and at a decent price.
