Quote from: Jim S. on January 29, 2011, 09:11:48 PMI am going to nominate my "Factory Custom" SC 1543. I paid less than $40.00 BIN delivered.This phone has a silver basecoat with a gold topcoat. The dial was custom painted. and the plungers are clearI feel this is a factory set because of the basecoat/topcoat paint job, and the clear plungers.The clear plungers were worth the $40.00 to me. I wanted them for spare parts. I also like unusual "finishes".This phone was covered in several decades of "kitchen grease". This photo is after 2-1/2 hours of gently cleaning the exterior of the phone. Jim S.
