Very nice "Brustmikrofon 33" (Chest Microphone Model 1933)
Used by battery commander in a "Feuerleit Stellung" (Fire Directing Unit)
Soldier of the Gun was connected to the Fire Direction Officer by this device
The headphone indeed has only one ear : it is the same as the Kopffernhörer 33 which also was used with the FF33 (Feldfernsprecher 33)
Here a picture of the Kopffernhörer 33
yes its WW2 german, today i have found a WaA Stamp on the Phone :-)

Sure it is german !!
I don't know what kurland vessel meant when he said "no ww2 military phone" because it is german !!

I think Kurland meant it was a microphone and headphone - not a telephone. Indeed, this is an original chest microphone and headset in very nice condition. The five prong connector was inserted into a field phone which was then connected to another field phone or a switchboard. Not sure about current value but I think you could expect to pay 300 to 450 US. They are lacking the transport cases. NH
Yes, it is a breast microphone with WaA stamp. A beautiful piece, but no telephone. Thank you all for your opinion.
Here's its brother
I got this example the other day when I bought up an old Channel Island collection. Surplus to my requirements but thought I would show it to you as its a nice example. There was also a nice telephone throat mike.
All the best from Jersey,
