Original German WWII 1944 Dated Model FF33 Wehrmacht Field Telephone - Feldfernsprecher 33
Original Item: The feldfernsprecher 33 (FF33) is the standard field telephone of the German military forces of WWII. It is a general purpose field telephone designed for wired communications. It was introduced in 1933 as a modern replacement for the previous WWI legacy field telephones the last of the series being the feldfern-sprecher 26 (1926). The FF33 can also be connected to the Torn. Fu. D2 and Torn. Fu. Bl, and F series radio sets to act as a remote handset.
This phone is dated 1944 on the handset making it late WWII issue, and comes complete with the winding handle. It is marked on the metal cradle with 61607 ber 1944 E, and has a waffenampt inspection mark on the bakelite near the connections. We believe it to be functional, but we have no way to test it. Overall condition is very good, with no cracks or chips in the bakelite case. It does appear to have had paint dripped on one side, but that can most likely be removed.
Ingeniously designed with what appears to be one traditional wartime style handset, the lid interior of one has built in electrical circuit schematics for informational purposes. Used by the German Army throughout WW2 and continued in service for another 25 years into the Cold War era.
See the book "Deutche Soldaten" by Agustin Saiz, pages 170/171, for more information on the Feldfernsprecher 33 phones.
