WE 3 37 302
« on: July 11, 2020, 12:47:24 PM »
This just came today, only thing changed was the ringer and he handset cord. Seller had two and the F1 with a Plastic case is more expensive.

Nice hotel/Motel dial card. I saw was the riveted feet so I took a chance I wasn't quite sure about the ears and plungers from the pics. It does have the wood dial stopper as well.

I finished phone work for today, but I will be at this in the morning.

Not as old as Bruce's IV36....but I am more than happy with it

Sometimes you do bite the bear...Doug

I had a set of cloth cords and wired it up. It is a working phone. Paint is in nice shape for its age, but not without issues.

This is one heavy phone!...Doug

Nothing bites about that set, or that price.
Nice find, I have to start watching out for deals..
