Quote from: Ryan_M on February 15, 2012, 11:01:09 AMHi there... This is my first post to a forum of any kind. I have only been collecting phones for about 2 months. I just purchased a Bakelite wall phone which I believe is an AE 50 for $20.00. The plunger is missing, and the threads of the handset are cracked. Phoneco is helping me with both of those issues. Can anyone tell me if this is a ship model? What have I got here? Also, Where can I find dates for it?

Also open your phone up and we'll see what you need for a plunger assembly. I might have a plunger that will work. .....Doug
