FOR SALE -- Western Electric models 500 and 5304
« on: January 30, 2017, 11:21:59 PM »
I am wanting to sell two of the three phones I own. I hate to do it but I need money. If you are interested and feel I am asking too much, please message me and we may be able to negotiate to an extent. I will describe the 500 first then I will describe the 5304.
 
This is a 1960 Western Electric 500 Rotory Phone. It was refurbished in 1972 and has parts from the mid 50's to the 60's. This phone is in perfect working condition and was used daily. I did not open to look at the dates inside, however the receiver dates to 1959 and the transmitter dates to 1956. I am including an adapter that converts the hard wire into a modular jack.It's a great old phone and perfect for regular use or to just sit on a shelf. I'd like 40.00 for this phone.

Next is a 1952 5304. Here we have an Western Electric model 5304 in full working condition and great cosmetic condition. It does have very minor wear and could use a light cleaning and polishing.  The 5304 is just liThis has the F-1 receiver and a 5-H dial. It was a daily user up until about a year ago.  The phone and parts dates are as follows:
Base- 3-52-I
Network 1-52
Ringer 7-48
Dial 8-52 5H
Receiver cap 5-57 Element 9-53
Transmitter 8-48
I would like 65.00 for the 5304.

I am in Lima Ohio 45804. I would prefer to ship via USPS Large Flat Rate box. I will either accept PayPal or USPS Money order. No other type of Money order will be accepted. I will also ONLY ship in the U.S., NO International shipping. If you would like both phones, I'd do a package deal of 90.00 for both.

Have I seen that 5304 somewhere before?  It looks familiar.  Was it in a thread on this forum?

Yes I shared my 5304 on here after I bought it. I really like it and my 500 but unfortunately I could use some extra money and I was hoping that these would be an easy sell and figured that had some decent value especially the 5304 since it's not all that common.
