Maybe if you could borrow some POR-15 liquid from someone. 
I have a smart phone mainly for emergencies and for directions, and for something to do while waiting for the doctor, dentist or whomever else needs to be waited on.  It is a godsend when I need it.
For Sale / Re: FOR SALE

Just sold 9 phones and some parts to Dennis Heinz, a compatriot of John Draper, aka "Cap'n Crunch".  He is mentioned on page 150 of "Exploding the Phone".
I don't know why I didn't think of this before. I have taken a photo of the SC 500 next to my SC 554 which is definitely Ivory. Am hoping the colour of the 500 will photograph better with a bit of contrast from the 554. The 500 definitely has a Salmon Pink tinge to it.

Thanks guys, your replies are helping a lot. Maybe the reason this colour isn't confirmed is because it darned won't photograph correctly!  ;D

Proper clever clogs you lot are! Love you all! for taking the time to reply!!  :)

Collector's Corner / Telephone Museum Waltham MA Phone Consignment

The Telephone Museum Waltham MA is accepting Telephones for Consignment. Lobby of the area the Museum is in has a large case. I have some extras there now since I no longer sell on eBay and CL seems to have dried up in my area. You set your price and they sell for whatever they want win
I got those colors from the list on Paul's site. I am unable to connect there again to download & post the list for some reason. Paul did have question marks after those 2 colors with no codes shown so I am guessing those are reported colors that are not confimed.
That S-C catalog lists the following colors for 500s:

 "Ivory, beige, gray, turquoise, blue, pink, yellow, green, red, black, white."

Later on, Stromberg-Carlson also made 500s in
brown, ash, lime green, orange.

I don't believe any company (ITT, WE, NE, S-C) made 500s in salmon or peach.

Sometimes too much padding can allow bumps and bashes to transfer right through to the phone, resulting in damage, so far the best way to deal with it that I've noticed is the phone being wrapped in bubblewrap, then placed into the biodegradable packing peanuts, as they tend to collapse more readily than bubblewrap or the non-biodegradable peanuts...
