Austria, 1980

Austria always used the optical cards of Landis & Gyr for public telephony, and commercialized many different ones, both public and private. The first Austrian telephone card was yellow, without the white band, and with a “painting” type print. The facial value was 100 units, and 88,800 were produced. 7,000 of these, with the codes 126000 to 132999, were used for internal tests; they were characterized by a small hole next to the logo, and by having a particular coding that did not allow its use in public telephones.Phonecards - Austria 1980
