On the perch the Markings of 50 AL were crossed out when WE upgrade the stick. Also an H in a square was added with the upgrade.

Rare Hershey Kiss Perch and Nickel retainer ring

This is an amazing find. It is all Original with excellent cloth cords and a marked WE receiver cap. A jack that was added so you can plug in and TALK! but this is to sit on a shelf!

Conversation is clear with NO static

Paint is OUTSTANDING! This is original paint and has NOT been repainted Displays excellent.

Beautiful WE Bakelite mouthpiece with * in center. Great Original Felt bottom cover

Beautiful 2AB H dial with patent dates around the edge. An H was stamped on this upgraded Dial.Really nice No Notch Porcelain dial plate. Dial spins with that great clickety clack sound. Heavy Brass finger wheel. NOS dial card.

If you have FIOS or Comcast it will not dial out. You need a subset for the phone to work properly and to ring.

This is for DISPLAY on a shelf. This is a wonderful piece of History.

Is there a mini network in that line box?

The box is a jack with the wires terminated to test it.  It would need a subset to work properly.

This should sit on a shelf and be admired.

All original parts are used, no mini networks here.....Doug

What model was it upgraded to --51AL? 151AL?
Must have started out as a 20-B or 20-S with a non-dial base.

Doug,

Is there a new model number on the other side of the perch? Or on the side?

By the way, that's a 20B/S perch. A Hershey Kiss is this one (attached).

Regards
Jack
