Quote from: Melanie W. on December 26, 2014, 01:12:52 PMMerry Christmas All! I hope you all had a lovely, blessed Christmas. Was nice to get back on here and read through everyone's greetings and well-wishes and humorous pictures. This Stromberg-Carlson 1543 (wall version) was under the tree for me. Apparently the word is out among the family, my brother-in-law had me for the gift exchange this year and I was quite surprised to get this. I believe there must have been some colluding between him and my husband because this phone is a mess! I could just hear him wrapping saying, "this outta keep her busy for awhile!" Stamped on base: "1543G 50-" I'm guessing 1950? Anyway, its my first SC. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year fellow Phone Lovers! -Melanie
