My Latest Arrivals

These three phones arrived this afternoon.

The 500 is rose beige soft plastic dated 3/56.  It is in very good condition.  The red D1 was apparently some sort of intercom.  The inside is full of weird stuff.  I plan to post pictures of it later.  The gold D1/F1 looks like a factory job.  The paint on the base is in good condition, but it is worn on the handset.  The handset is brown bakelite.

I paid a total of $140 for these three phones with shipping.  I think that I got a reasonable deal.



WOW :o
Great buy on some nice phones!

Nice covey there Larry, I was worried I had lost that Rose Beige in the mail. Can you send it the rest of the way north please? Congrats on the new additions!


Great phones!! I love when a phone arrives in the mail. I also like that radio in the background. That's something I'm afraid I'll be getting into collecting as well.  ;D


Also love the telechron war alarm clock in the background

Thanks for the compliment.  The clock in the picture is actually a Telechron 7H107 "Supervisor" which is pre-war vintage.  It is ivory plaskon and in near mint condition (and, of course, working perfectly).
