Quote from: Duffy on September 21, 2020, 06:59:33 PMThe handset colour being different than that of the body did concern me. But when I looked at the picture of my clear one off the red clear AE 80 it's not yellowed. I think that the handsets are made with a different plastic.I also attached a picture of the AE clear handset and Ray Kotke's.Ray's is the bottom one.

Quote from: Jim Stettler on October 02, 2020, 05:40:39 PMI always assume they made at least 1 example every phone in clear. there are a lot of clear ae80's and 80e, so I think they probably made a 90 in clear. Clear wall phones are a lot harder to find than clear desk phones.I have never seen or heard of a clear ae 90 (yet). they must be scarcer than the dark blue ae90's. I think there are 3 dark blue 90's in collections.Jim

Quote from: Jim Stettler on September 24, 2020, 06:17:34 PMI saw the crack and the screw.the crack is probably internal, Clear shows abuse much easier than color sets.the screw looks like a replacement to me, the finish appears wrong, possibly the wrong size, the original base screws are hard to lose, I wonder if the phone was 'created' with clear plastics and a spare red phone, that was missing a base screw.
