Notes:
The handset looks like a Handset No. 16 but is in fact slightly smaller.  A Handset No. 16 cannot be substituted for the original as it is too big and will not be held by Mickey's hand.

The ringer is a tone ringer that is the same as the one fitted to the Trimphone (Telephone No. 722).

The large white button to the left of the dial is a recall button used for transferring calls on telephone systems.
