Nice WE Blue 500 set 8/56

I had to work on Saturday and I jumped on eBay and this had just been listed. It is in really nice shape, date 8/56 throughout except 7/10/56 on the shell. It works!!

Very nice, indeed!

The buyer got a deal. Anyone want to own up to being the new owner, Doug?

Listed at $99 with a $199 BIN. Didn't last long, about 10 minutes.

Seller description:  "Great vintage western electric 500 series phone dated 8-56 all parts look to be original and the phone looks to be in working order, but it hasn't been tested. The clear plastic dial has some damage but other than that it's in great condition. Estate find"

Looks about right.  Could be the lighting washing the color out a bit.
