10 Button Northern "Princess"
« on: January 15, 2014, 05:46:56 PM »
Just bought this off eBay, got it cheap! This is not for my collection, expect to see it for sale here in the near future. I expect it to clean up nicely with a little peroxide treatment. It is missing one plastic window covering for the number card slot, anyone got a spare?

Nice set!  I've always liked the design.

Good luck!   ;)
 
That's the clear weak link for this model.  The plastic was brittle and the small size caused many to shatter when flexed for insertion or removal.
 
It would be a good repro part for someone to have made in quantity.  I'd be a buyer, too.

I was watching this auction.  Glad you won it for such a great price!  I agree, it should do well with the peroxide treatment.

A while back I asked Ray (kleenax) about making these number card windows. Also 10-button faceplates for 1500Ds.

Very nice,

I saw this too, but I was confused, I thought it was a later model or something, but just with the old keypad.

Though, it is too bad I didn't know about it being real, but I'm glad it went to a good home.
