alter Art" of 1905. Cylindrical body made of aluminum and
covered with black leather. Long push-to-talk key going
along the handset body, no other keys. Earpiece with thick
be continued after the picture set...
handset looks similar to 1905 model of "Armeefernsprechgerät alter
Art" yet lacking two service buttons. This is
easily explainable if we take into consideration that it was just part of a
staff field telephone, not a stand-alone device.
