Quote from: Dan/Panther on February 13, 2009, 12:09:43 AMI recently bought a near mint condition all matching 1955 WE500. It arrived today, and I opened it and was very pleased with how pristine it was, almost new. Then I started to look closer and much to my disappointment on the back in the carry well was written...Signal Corp U.S. ArmyTelephone setWestern Electric.Just how much does that delvalue an otherwise great phone ?D/P
Quote from: Dan/PantherOn the way I stopped at White Sands Proving Grounds to look at the Sand. I took a tupperware container and crawled through the fence and scooped up a bunch of the sand. I later found it's a federal offense to take the sand, and a hefty fine.I still gave the container of sand. we enjoy sitting in the dark and watching it glow...
