This would great in my house, but I'm afraid the final price might be a bit high.

I edited my original post and make the URL a link.  It should work now.

I don't think this is one of the "original colours" is it? or is this a grey-green as described by Paul

It looks like a decent 302.  Despite the cracks in the handset, it's a nice 302 in color.  I can't remember what the last one went for, but I'd think $150-$200.

Dan:

What about one square to the right on Paul's website where a -51 color code is listed under the caption of later models 300's in 500 colors from the 50's - Moss Green?  I am no expert on colored 300 sets.  I have two ivory 302's, and an ivory 354, so my color experience with them is very limited.

According to Paul's site, it's -19 Gray-Green. It looks to be all thermoplastic and not painted. The 302s from this generation (1950) came in:

-3 Black
-4 Ivory
-16 Old Rose*
-18 Dark Blue*
-19 Gray-Green*
-20 Pekin Red*

The asterisk (*) refers to availability on a desk set only. The 354 wall phone only came in black and ivory.

Why not!  It's official, this is the next auction contest!  Get your bids in before the auction's final day, and you could be the next winner!

I'm having connection problems at the moment, so I'll add the picture and scoreboard a little later.
