BTD: Definitive BT Phonecards

This section embraces both complimentary and definitive British Telecom (BT) Phonecards. The complimentary telephone cards are defined as those issued by BT without charge to introduce new customers to the system, repay the outstanding units on a card returned as faulty, or for use by engineers, cleaners and others for the testing of the system. The definitive cards are those cards available from BT's commercial/retail outlets at face value, and are in general use throughout the UK. They are usually generically known as "greenies", and are devoid of any serious illustration other than what is necessary to convey their obvious use. Included within this category are the 'Bonus' and 'Value Added' issues, even though their circulation may have been restricted to certain geographical areas, or their period of availability was short.

The cards pictured below appear in order of catalogue number BTD001 to BTD051. The cards pictured are a mere few from the BTD category which features 51 cards. To view all of the cards in BTD section simply purchase a copy of the UK 1 World Phonecard Catalogue (pictured right).
