Bakelite table telephone for use with Bellset No's 33, 35 & 40 on coin box circuits in Manual CB and Automatic areas.

Supplied without a base or dial as different types of bases & dials could be fitted depending on the type of call office.

No induction coil was fitted to these phones as the associated Bellset has the induction coil instead.

Late telephones, repaired at the PO factory were fitted with cloth covered handset cords (as shown).
