No takers at $28.95 for this beauty!  Unusual combination of parts.

Paul...I saw it and was curious what was over the transmitter. Touch tone dial pad missing parts? Cool how the zero and pound are separated around the zero. Never seen one like this. With the green center, it looked real. Kind of neat....Doug

It looks like a standard Soft-touch dialer was implanted in the handset.  Must have been quite the project.

The dialers were originally sold as screw-on replacements for a G-handset transmitter cap, and were available in all the standard colors.
