I have only seen Beige 50's in the Ships Phone configuration. Steve Hilsz scored a bunch of them a couple or three years ago and resold them to many of us. They never have the chromed caps and always have the bail wires to hold the handset in place.

I knew who the owner of the phones pictured above in the book case was as soon as I looked at it. Gary Goff.

All four are supposed to be originals.
