It has been joined by several more sets. Like Harry, my favorite is the GF.http://www.paul-f.com/we300typ.htm#GFOF COURSE. Must have one of each!

They're a bit newer than my favorite vintage WE items, so I told myself I'd get just one. Then I ended up with 3 different color 1500D's and a treasured 10-button Trimline 1220.

Quote from: Doug Rose on November 25, 2010, 04:27:12 PMI didn't think of that. I realy like that one. What is the date on the inside of the case?Kenny...like most 5302s its a mish mash of dates with a 5m dial. All the screws match the holes, doesn't look to be a force fit. The guys on the ATCA list said it was a fake. D/P...I doubt it was a prototye, with the way 5302s were made inside and outside the Bell System this looks like whatever someone had handy. Still a cool phone...Doug
