I love this phone. Its got impact, its not shy or coy. Its .... well, a word I wont use :)
The ringer is still working perfectly. (I'll link a video of it below) And it sounds awesome. I love the way the dial sounds too. Its got a nice subtle clicking sound. Very smooth. I updated the plug to a modern modular plug, so it will be ready to go when you get it.
It has the nice heavy, sturdy Bakelite body from the era. The color still looks good and dark, shiny. There are some scuffs on it, but they dont generally detract from the beauty of the phone. Also, it has the "PTT" logo on top. If you look closely at the top surface of the plungers you'll notice those have been detailed with maker designs as well. All the details on this phone add to its character.

Im going to be listing several phones this weekend so keep an eye on my shop!!!
Thanks! And remember to make sure your land line will work with a rotary phone, especially if you have digital service or VOIP.
