I can't believe I found this phone at the Carlisle Auto Swap Meet!

Seeing as it is an old telephone I'll use an old saying....NEATO!

Mark, the asking price was $245 and I got it for $200.   Prices in my area range from $325 to $450!

This telephone was all original and in very good condition.  I don't like conversions, plastic replacements for bakelite or refinished wood. This will be installed as is without any modifications!

 From the link above; (It has the original schematic on the inside of the door)    So does mine!
