Item specifics

Used: An item that has been used previously. The item may have some signs of cosmetic wear, but is fully ... Read moreabout the condition
This is a Vibroplex Original Standard Bug with the relatively uncommon beige coloured base made in 1979 in excellent condition complete with it's original although well worn packing box.

The serial number is 388986 which indicates a production date in 1979 and carrying a D7 nameplate. The nameplate still lists the 833 Broadway New York address but the key was actually produced shortly after the company was bought by Peter Garsoe and moved to Portland in Maine. An overlay label to this effect is attached to the outer of the packing box with a card giving the new address also included.

Vibroplex keys produced after 1979 do not have provision for a circuit closer switch.

Depending on the location of the buyer and the destination of the key, I may elect to package the key with the lever arm removed to prevent damage in transit. This will require the buyer to reassemble and adjust the key. In this case I will mail the original Vibroplex packing box separate from the key.
Postage to the UK is via Special Delivery Next Day at £9.99
Postage to the EU (selected countries) is via Royal Mail Airsure Small Packets at £25.99
