WESTERN ELECTRIC Mint Restored B1 Model (102) Dial Desk Telephone Picture and Description:
Superbly restored WESTERN ELECTRIC Model B1 (102) Dial Desk Telephone with early E1 Handset with Bullet Transmitter and old cords. This phone comes with the rare No. 2 HA Rural (numbers only) Dial. This is the model that emanates the classic "clackety clack" ratcheting sound on each dial return, as depicted in all the Humphrey Bogart movies of old. This dial was rebuilt and re-calibrated by Jeff Lamb of Canada. (Even the inside Dial parts are polished!) The phone body was stripped, primed, and re-painted by Jim Aita of Franklin Tennessess, and they don't come any better then him when it comes to refurbishing Western Electric telephones. It has 5 coats of Western Electric Black enamel,with that deep lustrous look, wet sanded between each coat, then buffed out, along with the early Bullet Transmitter equipped E1 Handset. To work properly on today's telephone network it would need a Subset. That Subset is not included with this auction. Shipping via Priority Mail International Medium box to Canada and Mexico will cost. $34.00. NO RESERVE!
