Introduced in 1938 this telephone was used with a Bellset No. 39 or 44 on CB & Auto systems. 

This combination was the main phone on plans 5 & 7.

The telephone differed from Telephone No. 232 in that it had an additional spring set and came without a base.

The Telephone No. 248 pictured below is mounted on a Bellset No. 39.
