TMC produced this compact telephone for Telephone Rentals and probably other suppliers.  This telephones has two capacitors (in the same casing) an induction coil and bell on the base plate.  In the body of the phone is a 6 way terminal block and unlike Ericsson and GEC compacts, is the only terminal block within the phone.

The base plate accommodates the capacitor, the bell ringer, bell gongs (barrel shaped) and induction coil.  The base plate also has oblong slots covered with mesh, which stop insects and foreign objects entering the telephone.

The case is straight edged at the bottom and has two cable entry holes on the rear, which have ebonite grommets.

The handset will most probably have the TR logo on the handle.
