Automatic Electric w/ Strowger 11 Digit Dial

is Automatic Electric / Strowger wall phone in nice original condition. The dove-tailed oak box appears to have the original finish and is free or any major nicks, dents, or scratches. The 11 digit Strowger dial turns freely and makes all the whirring and clacking sounds you expect from this ancient dial. The celluloid dial plate may be the original, but I can't tell. The finger stop has some rust and t is a knob at the bottom with an unknown purpose as it doesn't connect to anything inside. The transmitter is stamped "Automatic Electric Co. Patented in U.S.A. Nay 19, 1906" and has the original brass mouthpiece with some minor chips on the edge. The receiver is in good condition, free of chips, scratches or cracks, and the cord appears to have been replaced at some time. Inside it appears to be complete.
