It has been upgraded with an alpha numeric dial and has a microphone mute button in place of the call exchange.
Small repaired crack and so heavily discounted.
This is a wonderful example of a GPO 314F with drawer. The internals are marked 314F as is the base and all are dated 1955.This is the top of the range collector’s model with three buttons. The mechanism is all genuine and the centre call exchange button has been wired up to work as a microphone mute. It retains an original genuine GPO braided cord in used but very good condition and a GPO specification round plastic line in cord with a UK telephone socket. This telephone has been stripped down and rebuilt after each part has been cleaned and polished. The colour is perfect and looks stunning. The good news if you want it at a very reasonable cost is it has a small crack at No 8 that has been sealed and polished and can only be seen in the picture because the light was perfect. In reality I don’t think you would even see it if pointed out. This model is usually priced at £525 in mint condition on this site. I can make a dial label with your information at no extra cost.
