German bunker phone!!!
As i have mentioned before i'm working at a Telekommunications Museum here in Greece!
My current task is to write codes on every exhibit of the museum so i can touch and examine every single item of the museum!
Today was the day of the Military phones! These are big and massive items so they demanded a day on their own!
I found that phone that looks like a bunker phone to me ( the museum says it is a coal-mine's phone but i disagree)...
It was made by Siemens on 1940 and as far as i can see there are two eagles stamped on different locations...
As you can imagine i was delighted to find such an item in a Technological Museum! I spent a couple of hours just searching, cleaning and looking at it!
Here are the pictures for you guys!!
(that thing was extra super hyper heavy)

This is a tough one to track down. A good source is wasser.de/telefon. They have a lot of info about German phones. I don't have info on this type but it appears to be one of a series identified as Fg. NH
Hi yes its a bunker phone and looks to be in very good condition
saw the remains of these in a German bunker years ago.
Nice phone. You are likely the first to see the
inside since it was made. The internal bits
are in mint condition.........
Very nice - and a lot safer from hackers than these new fangled things! !

Agree nice phone nicely marked. timothy
Very nice phone indeed!! But i would prefer to see it in my war room that the apotheque of the museum without it having the proper publicity!!
I should go to hell for saying that but i catch a fever everytime i see a ww2 item away from it's ww2 family...
I was amazed from it's internal condition too!!!
