If you have a telephone in your box
I just wondered, what do you have printed on the dial insert?
To start, here's mine..

I couldn't find any real Met box or TARDIS reference for this.

That is a very cool style phone - what key words would I use to find one like it in a search engine? I love how it saves space and doesn't take up as much Tardis Box space as a standard rotary phone.
why doesn't the Guide mention them? - Oh, it's not very accurate.
Oh? - I'm researching the new edition.

Yes, space saving was my main reason for choosing it - I think I looked for "wall mounted bakelite telephone" or "wall mounted vintage phone"
It has some damage so it wasn't too expensive. I liked the fact it has a blank dial.

Hi TG, nice to see you again.

I like what you have done with the dial label, very much in keeping with a period label, but with that subtle twist!
