Shown with its original subset box. This was also called a 'selector signalling telephone.' The dialing mechanism is automatic. When the longer lever is turned to the extension or station desired, the smaller lever is rotated to the left and when released, dials that extension. There is also a pushbutton for ringing the selected station. See also wall and 'Mickey Mouse' Autophone models.
