Russ, I am happy to see you are active in the Forum.


Opened up phone yesterday and took pictures. Some dates are 7/9/54.  Found that Network is dated 6/54.  Price of phone is $75 including shipping.


Pictures attached.  Network is dated 6/54.


It's weird that NE has never, or almost never, stamped the date on their shell (housing I don't know), the caps and inside the handset! For WE phones, no problem, the dates are almost always affixed. Of all the ones I have, only one has dates everywhere but it's still frankenphones from different dates as well as lots of stamps..
