I think all but two will be sold for space reasons. There are some great sticks in the group of 12....plus the WE 130  Donut phone. The North and a really great Leich. I will get some pics out later. I am supposed to be resting after surgery yesterday. Nah!

Were most of these from the same dealer? It's lucky that these survived for 100 years.

David....all from the same person. Really in nice shape considering their age. My guess is some collector passed away and the phones were sold as a group to the person Janet bought them from as a group as well. All look untouched but a few a repro mouth pieces, so someone tried to fix them for sale a bit. Some really great sticks that I have never seen live. Really lucky!....Doug

North sticks like this didn't have a bottom.  There was originally a leather ring around the circumference of the base.

Re: North Stick comparisons, Two with rear shaft screws.

Hi Doug and Dave,
Doug your NE thick shaft is beautiful. My phone below  has a slightly different transmitter design . My old wall NE had a transmitter closer to yours. I have a WE 143 shell on a named NE cap/element as I have yet to locate a NE shell. Now I have a visual of your shell. Is there any chance you can show a photo of the named NE internal element so I can compare to mine ?

I also attached photos of my NE shaft as sold on EBay with the rear screw and one sold by Shelley   on EBay(red table cloth) with a rear screw.
Sincerely,
Bob Farber

Hi Doug,
My NE receiver internals match yours . Confirmation at last ! I am still in search of a bakelite NE shell to match my NE end cap . The early NE receivers are relatively uncommon . I have yet to find one on Ebay. Anyone have a spare NE shell?
Thanks Again,
Bob
