Dated 1959. Tested to be in working order!
The phone has been tested to call out, dial, and rings great. Even has a ringer volume adjust knob on the bottom.
The phones dial card has been updated to the Bell logo. The curly cord looks great. The wall cord has been updated so that it can be plugged right in when you get it.
Red phones are a special color to find in rotary phones. They didnt make very many, but they are so beautiful they are highly sought after even 50 yrs later.
The phone does show some signs of vintage wear. There is a scratch on the handset which Ive shown in the last pic.
All in all, a beautiful special phone.
Please be sure a rotary phone will work on your land line, especially if you have a digital phones service like voip or vonage.
As always, feel free to email me about any questions or requests you have!!
