Wow, that is quite a project. Lots to do.

Does it work? Is there no bracket for the mother in law receiver?

I gave it a quick try.  There was some static, but it did work.  I was able to dial my voice mail and leave a message.  There is no extra receiver bracket, but the pattern of discoloration on the back shows the outline of the receiver and bracket, so it apparently had one in the past.  I can manage without it.

What this phone was doing in Bulgaria, I would like to know.  I am also still curious as to what the Australian 802 I bought recently was doing in Ukraine.

COOL ;D Nice looking phone! The mother in law is pretty neat. If you could keep it I think it is worth it.

Larry, I see a lot of migrant workers from Eastern Europe in our 2nd hand shops, charity shops, etc. They buy a van full of stuff and take it back to the country of origin. Perhaps a Bulgarian worker loaded his van in France and took it back to resell the stuff.

Perhaps the French PTT sold of surplus phones to Burgaria.
