Quote from: Jim Stettler on March 02, 2022, 09:49:06 PMI bought this Gray AE 90 on eBay February 2022.https://www.ebay.com/itm/373927547640I had never heard of a Gray AE 90. This is an early set with the painted switch hook.It reminded me of the very rare dark Blue AE 90. I think it is the same vintage.My total with purchase, tax and shipping was $91.81. I felt it was a nice price.Jim

Quote from: SUnset2 on March 09, 2022, 02:45:38 PMMy later red AE 90 has a hooklatch like that. Only the listen circuit is enabled until you push the lever. That way you don't barge into the other party's call.

What does the tab on the handset side of the case in the back of this phone do? Is this a standard feature of AE90's? I have had only one early black one with a painted hook that did not have it. I haven't noticed that on others before...JC
