Aside from the broken corner (and a few cracks radiating out from the broken corner), the phone is in nice shape. The handset is solid blue (not painted - I took it apart and checked) and it has the clear dial, etc. and even has a cloth cord. Anyway, I hope that I did OK with it since I'm more of an antique radio guy than a phone collector. But, I never saw a blue phone like this before so that's why I bought it!
