McHeath is so modest.  You're the winner, son! Congratulations!

Even with the mis-matched parts, I think that's a fair price.

Stay tuned for the next auction, to be posted shortly!

Now for my acceptance speech...ahem,

Four score and seven phones ago our strange hobby was born, ask not what your Western Electric 500 can do for you, ask what you can do for your Western Electric 302 with the bad pink spray can paint job, we choose to do the hard sanding jobs not because they are easy but because they are hard.

Thank you and good night.

Here's a dial that would have worked in the two-tone 5302.

NOS - New Old Stock, but what is NIB?  New In Box?
