Kellogg 1040 MTH/CBTH

Another emergency import after the Second World War. Like the Federal phones, it was introduced in 1948. It was issued by Stores as Serial 1, Item 139. The phone was not issued a local Type number but was referred to by its Kellogg model number. It was associated with a 5-bar Kellogg generator in its own box.

In common with the other U.S. phones its high-impedance bell meant that it was not suitable for party lines. The standard 300-type handset could be used as a maintenance replacement.
