    Default 1917 British Trench Phone and morse key

    A Friend popped by this morning to buy some stuff from me I just picked up..He brought this along for trade and I had to have it!!!
    A Great Piece for my Collection.
    I have looked online and cannot find any of these for sale..I am not selling this, as I said it is for my collection, however does anyone know what they are worth? I put a lot of trade into it, and would like to know if I got a fair deal.

    It has all the straps and both brass plates, it is Broad Arrowed marked

    I used to use a similar key to this with my HF transceiver. the finer the gap between the contacts - the faster you can send the CW (morse) didle-di-dah-di-dah! (VA)
