I limit myself so that I only collect genuine British Telephones. I have sympathetically converted these old phones so that they will still function properly when connected to a modern BT telephone exchange line. I do not believe the conversion of these Bakelite GPO Telephones diminishes their value, because I do not remove any of the original components, I just service and adjust them and only add a small number of electrical components that can be easily removed later if needed. I also have my own antique telephone Facebook site at Old Antique & Vintage Telephones . I also convert and restore these old telephones for other people.
