I know exactly what I'm passing up, but if I don't collect it, I don't collect it. I've let some nice phones pass me by lately, but never brown bakelite before. This only $28.

Quote from: FABphones on November 15, 2018, 05:22:57 AMEarly start to the day today. Got it! 25€ (approximately £22, Canadian dollar $37, US dollar $28).Even nicer than the pics. Lovely smooth Bakelite finish that I think will clean up beautifully. Not a spot of paint to be seen.Covered in thick dust and quite grubby. All levers in good condition (these are often the first part to break), they will need attention as a few are stiff. Nicotine crust to mouthpiece, endcaps refuse to move. Dial turns but is a tad slow.Apart from some fraying to cable around mouse hole, all cables original and in good condition. Metal terminal box still attached.Pleased to find no damage to any part of the phone.Lots to do today so I can allocate some uninterrupted time to this phone. Will update with pics.Thanks all. Am pleased I got this.
