Can you guys confirm from this image which dial this is?

I guessed at 4H (shape of finger stop, Z over operator).

Thanks.

Absolutely no way that I know of to tell a #4 from #5 by a photo like that, but an educated guess by looking at the fingerstop, I would say #5 dial. The fingerstop just looks a little too "new" (sharp corners, etc) to be on a (earlier) #4.

Number plate is III 40 - II 53. (See rounded "D.")
Number card and handset cord are reproductions.
Finger stop is pre 9-45.

Probably #5, but could be #4.  If you can show us the back side, we can tell for sure.

I see those number plate on 4 and 5 dials but the finger stop looks like a No 4.

To be certain though, I'd need to see the back.

I don't think that number card was made by WE. Here is a similar one (See reply 10 -- Larry)
http://www.classicrotaryphones.com/forum/index.php?topic=24178.msg240706#

Real number cards (such as the E1164) have perforated lines so that they may be used on 128-type number card holders for desk stands or 533A wall phones.

I meant number plate - I corrected it.
I was also referring to the original post.

If there was a view of the rear the question wouldn't have arisen.

The original post states: "(This is the only image I have)."

Jack is correct, just the one photo to try and identify the dial, but that's how it goes sometimes.

Thanks to all for the input. The time you take to reply and share your knowledge is much appreciated.
