*********************************************************************
Model US-4                SN = 21436                           (1967)

Case made in Japan ...            Chassis made by WesternElectric ...

            

This Telephone has a metal case w. brass works & brass dial. The dial
numbers are enamel. Only the white parts of the hand-set are plastic.
The dial-center shows a  baroque scene:  A couple in the fields.  The
wings allow to carry the telephone around when the handset is placed.

The telephone works well today too; especially when the power is off.

The LETTERS ON THE DIALER are for  MEMORIZING TELEPHONE NUMBERS ...
