Hi guys . this phone has a real good luck story. Would you believe one of my friends was asked to put the axe through these and take them to the tip. This was 30 odd years ago. He came to me and said Carl I dont want to destroy these how much would you offer me for them. I replied when I saw the condition of them ( spotless ) You tell me how much you want for them ( I did not want to risk insulting him with too low a offer ). He said 20 Bucks omg I could not let that go . well I can tell you that these phones have never been used at all. they are as they came out of the factory . The cords still had wax proof paper around them . well I have sent some pics to Brad and hopefully they should be up soon. Please let me know your thoughts I have had them valued but wouldnt mind a second opinion. They are not for sale $5000.00 LOL.

Please note the date 1942 is on the hand piece ( date is on the handset ). The cardboard tag is showing that the army had checked them to see if they can be put into service in 1962.
