    Default Feldfernsprecher 33 1943 ?

    I have just bought this Feldfernsprecher 33, byt I am a bit unsure about it, which year is it from (perhaps 1943), and does anyone know more about it, and the names/codes on the top cover:
    Serieal nr of the telephone: 88671 (M) 1943 E
    On the handle is says 1940
    On the earpiece is says 1936

    My phone has a green line on the top, so I guess it is Army/ Wehrmacht ?

    I have tested mine and it works, and it is in complte condition.

    I have found this tread from a former post, it gives clues:

    Here are some nice links with more info:

    Looks to be a nice original Feldfernsprecher 33 in the same condition as my own. The green line is army/heer and the codes on top are the same as mine.Unable to help you on original date.

    Hi Martin
    Thank you for your reply, i have "googled" more and the names/codes on the top cover are similiar on other phones, perhaps it is standard ?

    Hi John
    Yes I think they are original but there's a debate that they may be actually postwar.Maybe another member might enlighten us.

    You can also find post-war Czech phones similar to the German ones.
    Looking for following WWII German items:
    - anything dealing with Allenstein (Olsztyn) and Wehrkreis I in East Prussia,
    - entrenching tool carrier (straight and folding),
    - forestry and hunting items,

    I would be very interested in hearing what the argument for these phones being post war is. They are usually repeatedly waffenamt marked (i see one on this example) and dated, and there is ample photographic evidence of them in use. See the markings on my phone below, and a picture of them in use. I would certainly think that 1943 was the manufacture date in this instance, as 1939 is on my example.

    I agree with Douglas, the phone is not postwar, mine has 1936 on the ear piece, 1940 on the phone handle, and 1943 on the phone box, perhaps it has been damaged, and phone handle and ear piece has been replaced with spareparts. I think mine is from 1943 as well.

    I meant to say that the phonetic code on the lid was supposed to have been changed postwar.

    Bona fide WWII. Test it by obtaining a D battery adapter (just one D) and attaching it to the two posts in the battery box. These operated on 1.5 volts. Hold down the Sprechtaste on the hand set. If you can hear yourself clearly you have a good phone. NH

    Hi Martin
    The Phonetic code on the lid is the common one (see this former tread about it: http://www.warrelics.eu/forum/field-...-dated-180945/, they are stating: A key component to identifying a WWII era German field phone is the alphabet code panel on the lid. If the phone was used post war it was replaced with one from the country that used it or with a NATO panel, and on my phone there are the originals ones.
    Try Google, then you will see different but original phontic codes:
