Did you get this green telephone?
« on: March 04, 2013, 04:02:43 PM »
I didn't get it did you?

I'm curious about if this is the 1929 (booster circuit) or the 1930 anti side-tone version.

The sister of this?

I wish I did.... I saw it last week, but forgot about it.  Did not expect it to go this cheaply actually.

The bottom base plate looks from below exactly like my 1947 BTMC, same holes where the gongs are, identical arrangement of screws for the ringer parts, same hinge arrangement, same holding cylinders for the soft feet material, and it seems the latch that holds the lid closed is the same too.  Same holes on the side for the cords.  This one has a date (?)  stamped 11--9. Is it a date?

I bet these all were imported or manufactured for Europe through the BTMC.

The off-white label tells me it has been repaird in Oslo, and the label states it to be a Standard Electric 1929 version 6. These labeles were often wrong, and my 1930 had a1929 label too.

It is a label under!

The handset is probably older then mine who came in 1930!

The brass (ish) button on the top indicates where de dial wirec originally came out, and the dial was put on a bracket like mine, even when it was used several different dials.
