THIS AUCTION IS FOR AN OLD BELL SYSTEM MADE BY WESTERN ELECTRIC L55 PBX. I BELIEVE IT TO BE A 555 OR FROM THAT FAMILY. LOOK AT THE PICTURES, I DON'T KNOW A LOT ABOUT THESE BUT IS WHAT I CAN TELL YOU, IT IS IN THE CONDITION IT WAS WHEN PULLED OUT OF SERVICE ON LONG ISLAND. IT STILL HAS THE POWER CORD WITH PLUG CONNECTED AND THE LARGE TRUNK CABLE IS T RIGHT TO THE POINT W THEY CUT IT OFF. IT LOOKS TO BE ABSOLUTELY COMPLETE, IT DOESN'T LOOK LIKE ANYONE MESSED WITH IT. THE DIAL WORKS WELL, THE HANDSET IS PLUGGED INTO A "BELL SYSTEM" MARKED VOLUME CONTROL UNIT. THE WOOD IS OVERALL BEAUTIFUL T IS ONE SMALL BLEMISH ON THE TOP NEAR THE REAR W I GUESS SOMEONE HAD SOMETHING ATTACHED. THE BASE WITH THE WHEELS IS ATTACHED AND COMES WITH IT. I WHEELED IT OUT OF THE GARAGE TO TAKE THE PICTURES. IT HAS BEEN RETURNED SO I CAN'T TAKE ANY OTHERS AT THIS TIME BUT IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONS I WILL DO MY BEST TO ANSWER THEM.
THIS IS A WONDERFUL PIECE OF OUR TELEPHONE HISTORY, CERTAINLY NOT SOMETHING YOU WILL BE ABLE TO FIND MANY OF AND IT THIS GREAT CONDITION AND STATE OF ORIGINALITY.
OBVIOUSLY THIS ITEM IS LARGE AND RATHER HEAVY. IT IS THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE BUYER TO PICK UP OR ARRANGE FOR PICK UP. WE ARE LOCATED ON LONG ISLAND.

THANKS FOR LOOKING AND HAVE A WONDERFUL HOLIDAY!
