This is a great army surplus item! It's a Swedish Army Field Telephone dating from the 1940s to 1950s and made by Ericsson.

The telephone is housed in a bakelite / early resin plastic case with a leather carrying strap. The cover is held down with two metal hinges, marked "Ring Av" and "Fienden Lyssnar" (roughly meaning "Hang Up" and "Enemy Listening") Also on the cover is a metal plate with the Swedish Army official designations for using letters on the phone (their version of Able for "A", Tango for "T", etc.)

Opening the cover reveals a telephone handset, receiver rest, wiring terminals and a circuit "key" for sending in Morse Code. There's a small tool and spot for the hand crank, when not in use on the side.

Price listed is for one field telephone. I had two and recently sold one of them. The remaining field telephone is seen at left in photo number 1 of the listing. It is identical in every way to the other except that it has an earlier 1940s style case (brown bakelite) and an olive leather strap (as opposed to brown).

This is a pretty heavy and bulky item. The field phone will just fit into a Large Flat Rate USPS box. Please convo me before purchase if you would like a shipping quote to your address. Happy to oblige!

Thanks for looking, and please ask any questions you may have! Thanks!
