Three Secretarial Sets
« on: March 30, 2016, 07:24:19 PM »
Did anyone else see these three unusual Touch-Tone secretarial sets? They were NOS and all from the same seller in Morganton, NC, which isn't close to me. They ended this afternoon for a bit over $1,525! Two were panel phones and one was a white 10-button desk phone.

Auction links:
Silver: http://www.ebay.com/itm/331813216760 (brought $811.01)
Copper: http://www.ebay.com/itm/231890629487 (brought $511.07)
White: http://www.ebay.com/itm/331813237661 (brought $203.50)

The seller says the panel models are 2751C, but the silver has a message waiting light and the copper doesn't. They both seem to have an exclusion switchhook (the small button underneath). The box label for the copper one isn't pictured. The box for the desk phone says 1512B, but it may have been modified beyond that, which is something Paul mentions on his site. I attached some auction pics.

Here's Paul's explanation of what a Secretarial set is.

Yes, I watched them with interest.  The two white sets are on their way to the JKL Museum, so we should get to see some good photos eventually. Secretarial sets with message waiting are quite unusual.

The desk set box is marked 1512BCR -- including the code for the modification as described on my site.
