Title: FALL CLEANING - COMING SOON
Post by: HarrySmith on October 02, 2020, 11:41:45 AM
My wife says I have too much C.R.A.P. in the house!! (Communications Related Apparatus & Parts)
She is correct, I cannot even find things I know I have. Time for some fall cleaning & purging. I have not had great success selling here in the past but I will give members first shot. If I get no takers in a week it will go off to eBay and/or Craig's List. I will be offering some phones & a ton of parts. I plan on starting this weekend so keep an eye on this post as I will update it as I find things to add. I am working full time, 12 hours a day, so I do not have a lot of time to spend on listings. I am not going to start a separate post for each item. I will post 1 picture of each item. I will take more pictures if needed/requested.

Nothing I need there, but that is quite the collection of white Trimlines.
I take it that they are all touch tones?

Yes, all touch tone.

Box 2 continued.
With the original box and paperwork, appears unused. A strange one from Northwestern Bell, "The Great Little Phone". Gets dialtone, I think the clock part needs a battery.
Next up Green Western Electric 2500, working. Had no handset cord, I added a new Gray cord.

I just got one of these in green, also NIB.  I wasn't able to get the clock part off for the life of me and I wound up cracking the LCD.   Ugh.   Oh well.

The clock part just snaps right out of this one. Make an offer and it could be your parts phone.

Next up is a WE 5302. This one has been in my collection for a while. I think this is one of the first I collected. I have another so I don't need to keep 2. The 302 parts are dated 1947 and the 6H dial is dated 9-59. Has cloth line cord with 4 prong plug. Handset cord is a little sticky as usually get after sitting a while. Western Electric F1W handset. I plugged it in & it gets dial tone. It was working fine when I put it on the shelf years ago. Make an offer before it goes to eBay.

Next I have a 500 & a 554.
First is the 500. It is a regular WE 500 from 1965. Appears to be all original, dates matching. Needs TLC, I have not restored or cleaned it, as found. I have tested it, it works fine, transmits, receives, dials & rings. No line cord. I can throw in a silver half mod line cord if wanted. Also I can probably dig up a black line cord and add a biscuit for additional $5.00. To your door in the lower 48 $30.00.

Now the 554, it is and ITT dated 4/84. Modular. Yellow, needs TLC, as found. Tested & working. $25.00 to your door in the lower 48.

EDIT: I just took another look at this and I think it is beige, not yellow. You decide.

Thanks, and I definitely would have if it were a green one.  I actually found another green one that I parted out, since the receiver didn't work on it.
