I love the colored Norths. I doubt I'll ever find one in my price range though.
My name is Kenn, and I like telephones.

What is interesting about the north and Kellogg sets is over time the color fades to a slate look. So you have to look close at every one you see. If it is a colored one it will not be black but a slate looking color. If you see this you take the caps of the handset or remove the base to see if it colored inside. Once the phone is buffed all the color will return. Same with the Kellogg's with them look for the clear plunger. I can tell you,that you may be looking at a colored set and never know it until you look inside. These materials that the North and Kellogg's were made of also never shrink. The wall phone in these sets are Impossible to find. So if you see one grab it.

I was fortunate enough to log on just after dinner  it was the first listing in the new phones. I couldn't buy it fast enough, plus eBay had a 10% eBay bucks. Whoa! I just got it today, handset is a bit darker in places. I does have the gold handset cord and the always broken matching finger wheel. I hadn't been this nervous since I won the Blue 302. I am very excited about this new addition....Doug
