Boy In A Suitcase

Today I was able to purchase a new Ericofon since long. Actually it is the first in 2019 that I can add to my collection. Was about time.

Here’s the sneak preview as the phone is still on its way in its own suitcase ๐Ÿ˜‰ Can’t wait to receive it…

Update 13/04/2019:

This week the boy arrived and I am very happy with the new Ericofon. You might already have come accross this variance of Ericofons: a leather encased type. The origin of leather Ericofons is not really known although there are some speculations. It seems that they are seen in 3 colors: brown, green and red. All leather Ericofons have the same unique dial face. This model has a chassis that dates back to 1973 and the shell is Swedish, from 1975.

The dial face is a Swedish Telia type with an additional black sticker. This sticker covers the original 0-9 numbering and changes this is into 1-0. This indicates that the origin of this leather type is most likely not Swedish. One of the theories is that these types were make in Denmark.
Leather Ericofons were spotted in Brown, Green and Red. I expect that this one was originallly green as it still has a hint of this color over the surface. Must have been worn off or removed in the past.
Here you can see how tight the shell is sewn into the leather. There is no way it can be removed. The shell has Swedish markings inside and dates back to 1975.
