I also scored one of early 283B plugs without the "ears" on the line cord. Of course, the bad part is the "hen's teeth" status of the missing gray handset cord. I'm considering trying to make a straight one for it. My issue is finding the right thickness and flex in a dark gray cord. So far light gray is all I can find. I'm toying with the idea of trying some dye approaches to darken the cordage...
