This vintage desk telephone was made in the USA by Western Electric, for the Bell System - it's a model 500 DM and dated 1979 on the bottom but the inside parts are dated 1953 & 1954. The red case is 1977. It was 'reworked' by the phone company in 1979 to add modular connections & new plastic housing. Note, it was still owned by Ma Bell then - when they were made to last. Nice and shiny red case and in excellent condition. It's really hard to find a mark on it! I'd rate this a 9.5 out of 10. It's a dark red - like an apple, not a cherry. I've made and received calls with no problems. Twin brass bells are loud. This is fully modular phone and I will include a line cord. Bottom is black and rubber feet are in good condition.
