Seller: twolf71 (277) 100%, Location: Pioneer, California, Ships to: US, Item: 264430440257 This is a decent condition, marked 51AL, dial candlestick phone. Dial works well, has the original brass finger wheel. Original 144 receiver marked 1370 on the inside of the cap. Mouthpiece is old, and has no damage. Original 3-conductor internal harness is in place, as is the single transmitter lead. Original 2-position terminal in the base. Transmitter is marked as a 323BW, however the original face casting is hiding a newer T-1 transmitter. How this phone got an earlier solid cast neck is interesting, for sure ! I can only speculate though... Maybe this set dates back to the mid 1920's and is a "C-stock" set built from a combination of new and reconditioned used parts ? Maybe ! Or...maybe it was all new, but manufacturing was short on perches, so a quick fix occurred. Remark the switch terminals, and restamped the neck to display the 51AL code, and use it ! I don't know....but I'd bet on C stock... I did mate this phone to a subset, and connected it to my land line. It worked just fine! Dialed numbers correctly, etc. Receiver is strong and transmitter was clear, too. So, if you want to use this phone you'll need a 3 conductor mounting cord and an appropriate ringer box/subset. The box could be a 295, 334, 534, or 584. If you need to buy a box and cord, I can make them available...just ask ! Shipping will be by USPS medium flat rate for $14.35, plus $3.50 for $200. worth of insurance, for a total of $17.85. US sales, only. Thanks ! Condition: Used, Condition: Wear consistent with age, decent condition, tested/ working., Country/Region of Manufacture: United States, Brand: Western Electric
