Phones from 1940s and World War II era do turn up every now and then, but this is a rather unusual piece. This phone is actually a US Army issued telephone! Simple, but very heavy duty! This phone was built to last!

One the back states: Signal Corps U.S. Army Telephone TP-6-A

Made by the Conn. Tel and Elec. Corp.

The condition is overall good, but has been used. The receiver has noticeable wear, and there is some general paint chipping and patina, but very much expected from a 70 year old phone! The underneath of the phone has a cool diagram of the inner workings of the phone for repair, don't see that on civilian phones! Only piece missing from the phone (as you can see) is there was most likely some sort of cover over the dialer, might have been military related and removed before switching to new phones. Hard to say.
The receiver cord appears to be original, but believe the wall jack is a replacement. Has been tested and did indeed have a dial tone!

This phone actually came from a local military base in the Hampton Roads, VA area. No telling who had this phone or what type of info was communicated through it, kind of fun to think about!

All in all, this phone is really cool and would fantastic in a hallway or study!

Keep in mind, IT WORKS!!!!!!!!!! So, fully functional and classic rare piece of phone history.

Measures about:

5 inches wide
5 1/2 inches tall
7 1/2 inches long

Perfect for the 1940s/mid century home, telephone collector, or WWII buff!
