Grey Vintage Rotary Dial Phone - 8021 made by PMG / Telecom refurbished Case and recall button
Vintage 8021 Retro Rotary Dial Grey Phone refurbished with transfer button
This Vintage telephone has a new dial label (blank). This was the standard telephone in Australian large buineses during the 1960's and 1970s. PMG/Telecom code was 8021 ACF Grey . This vintage phone comes in a vintage Telecom box.
Tens of thousands of these phones were destroyed - they are now rare - with ones in as good condition as this - even rarer
This phone has a refurbished plastic phone shell, the handpiece and curly cord are refurbished. The electronics have been refurbished. the handpiece and case has been buffed, but still has some fine scratches and sun fading, however its good for another 30 years. It looks fantastic for a 40 year old telephone. It has a recall button on the bottom right side of the phone. This button was used to transfer calls internally within a business that operated a PABX . The button will not do anything on normal telephone lines.
This is not a junky phone like those being sold on eBay, or sitting in someone's shed, or bought at a garage sale - this is a quality telephone.
Dials decadic, it will not dial DTMF tones that you use for voicemail/call centres etc. However it dials telephone numbers fine, information on decadic here. It rings with a loud mechanical bell that you can adjust under the phone.
