Vintage Rotary Telephone Western Electric 202 D1 1937

Oh man, this little guy is great!

The Western Electric 202 or D1 made its debut in 1928 following in the footsteps of the 102 or B1 telephone. As with the 102, a separate ringer box or subscriber set was needed to go with the telephone if you wanted anti-side tone features and a ringer. Otherwise, the phone can be wired for direct plug in without a ringer and without the anti-side tone features.(This phone does not come with ringer box or subscriber set.)

Markings:
D1 USA on back neck of base
6-52 5H stamped in orage inside dial
Westren Electric metal stamped on inisde dial
IV 37 stamped in orange inside base
11-7 metal stamped inside base

Base is oval, made of zinc alloy and has original black matte enamel paint. Base plate is covered with soft suede and rubber rings for protection. Base has moderate use and age wear with scratches and rubbing. The fingerwheel works perfectly, but does have heavy scratching on the center ring. Center picture is of roman statue. Painted numbers and letters have light overall wear. The 0 has a Z!

Handset cradle has moderate amount of rubbing and use wear.

Automatic electric handset model 41.

Original cord still present with small piece of black electrical tape on one spot and age wear.

I have no way of testing this phone so it is AS IS.

Great home decor or restoration project!
