Oh, you mean the Princess with the turquoise number card blank? Yes, the phone is on my desk.
IIRC, I punched the number card insert out of some Tiffany cardboard, I don't remember anymore exactly what it was. I still have a stack of those somewhere. I don't think Princesses came from the factory with any special number card matching the phone color, they probably just had a strip of the standard type of plain gray card that was appropriate for the time.

PS:  probably  E-4203-G  as shown in BSP Section C18.055.1 Issue 2 April 1960.

Here is a typical card of early 1960, found on an April 1960 Princess.  Notice that these card do not have the notch on the right side, at least it is not torn out, because the Princess fingerwheel did not have the alignment guide inside. Instead, I think they had an arrow on the back for alignment to the small sharp point in ca. the 10-o'clock position.

Ya, me too. If there's ever a demand for handsets we'll have it made :)

Hahaha, well. It seems we've located the weak points of the princess telephone.
