Hello, I'm not really new to phones, been playing with them and collecting them since the 90's.
No expert by any stretch of the imagination and a failing memory doesn't help. I'll be 70 next year so that'll give ya an idea where I'm coming from. I'm a retired OTR truck driver of 20 plus years and have always liked the mechanical items of the past such as Telephones, Appliances, etc. Basically anything that plugged into the wall. I have collected and restored most of them at one time or another. Hoping to meet some fine people with the same interests and at the same time refresh my memory of what little I did know about phones. Thank you all!

Thanks guys, LOL! about 3 months here and not one reply or welcome.
Ya all know how to make a fella feel welcome.
But, at least I got two likes, one from a new guy! LOL!

I think many of us missed seeing this thread, so a warm belated welcome to CRPF.

Am enjoying reading about your finds, you have some very handsome phones in your collection.

I understand CJ, I'm not one to search out the new comers and welcome them on any of the forums I've been on either.
Just want to give ya all a little grief is all. LOL!
Thank you CJ, I know my finds aren't nothing that most of ya all here don't have already or don't want but, I lik'em.
And my main reason here is to converse, learn, and refresh this memory of mine but, I find not many of ya do a lot of conversing. I don't remember that from the last time I was a member here but, I reckon like a lot of forums out there they are dieing off a little and maybe difference of interest has a lot to do with it. I'm not too interested in the technical aspects or why something is a certain way, I'm the guy that just likes it for what it is and doesn't care why it has this or that too much. That and I live out in the sticks and don't even see many people much less talk to any so this is my place to talk to people so I don't go completely nuts, LOL!

Stub, Thank you sir, 53 was a good year but, I don't own a AE 90.
Your thinking of the brand new gentlemen "Darkstar2006". That's okay though, we all make mistakes, I know.
I hold the record, LOL!
