WW II German Army Tischfernsprecher 38 - COMMAND / HQ TELEPHONE. The Tischfernsprecher 38, also known as the OB 38, was a field telephone used by the German Army during World War II.
It was designed to provide reliable communication for field commanders and was commonly used in command posts and other mobile locations. The Tischfernsprecher 38 was a compact, portable telephone that was easily transportable by one person. It was housed in a metal case with a hinged lid that protected the handset and dial from damage during transportation. The telephone had a built-in speaker and a rotary dial that could be used to dial other telephones on the same network.However, it is possible that some TF-38 phones were housed in a bakelite case. Bakelite was a type of plastic that was widely used in the early to mid-20th century for a variety of applications, including telephone cases. Bakelite was known for its durability, heat resistance, and insulating properties, which made it an ideal material for use in telephone cases. One of the key features of the TF-38 was its ability to be connected to multiple other telephones through a switchboard. This allowed for more efficient and organized communication between different units and headquarters.
The TF-38 was an important tool for the German Army during World War II, as it allowed for effective communication between staff members. It was used in a variety of military operations, including the invasion of Poland, the Battle of France, and the North African campaign. Today, the TF-38 is a sought-after collector's item, and can be found in military museums and private collections around the world.
It is a reminder of the importance of reliable communication in modern warfare, and a symbol of the technological advancements made during World War II. A very rare telephone set, especially a signaling device. I will be happy to provide additional photos and information.Make your best offers to sellers from Ukraine, every sale is very important.
