Clear 283B Plugs?
« on: February 16, 2016, 06:48:37 PM »
I hope I'm not posting something that could drive up bidders, but I thought I'd take my chances and post it anyway.

Has anyone ever seen 283B plugs in Clear like this? It looks like at least one of them is a female plug.

I have seen them in panel phones. I also have a clear SC 500D ( dated 9-71) with white cords and white dial. It has a clear 4 pin female jack. This phone came with the original box (marked clear and dated 9-71). I don't know why it has a female jack vs a male jack.
