Quote from: tptech302 on July 28, 2013, 09:43:20 PMI would like to submit a 1955 Mahogany Brown 500 set found on eBay BIN for $39.95. It was late night and from the pictures hard to tell if it was really a Mahogany Brown or not but took a chance on it based on the cord. All date are 1955, the straight brown handset cord is in great condition, but the line cord has been cut. I haven't taken the time to clean it up yet, and it appears to have had ink spilled on it at some point in time. I'm really unsure of the best way to clean this good, so if anyone has suggestion it would be appreciated.
Quote from: tptech302 on August 05, 2013, 01:27:16 AMThanks AE40FAN.The pics the seller had made it hard to see condition, but with a BIN I didn't want to chance on waiting for a reply to questions. I have been working on cleaning it up, and so far it turning out pretty good. It appears to be 2 medium size spots of writing ink on the handset. All date are 3 or 4 of 55. I was sad to see the line cord had been cut, but the handset cord is in great shape.
