Chrome/Nickel D1 202 Red Thermoplastic Handset
« on: November 14, 2015, 12:42:20 PM »
 I think this was chromed, but it could be nickel. You don't see many manual sets chromed, usually a dial set. This has a real nice WE Red Thermoplastic handset and cloth cord. Red dial card is a repro made for me. Really hard to get a picture with the reflection....Doug

It's a beauty, the red and chrome go together nicely. Nice find.

Doug;
I agree, Chrome is very Shiny ? Nickel is more a slight Greenish Yellow tint. Not as bright.

Nice phone, Doug!

Nickel has a 'warmer' (yellowish) tint, while Chrome has a colder (bluish) tint.

Compare this one to a chrome Payphone and nickel candlestick, you should see the difference there.

Sure does have a nice "pop" to it.
