Aqua blue 2500 or ???
« on: June 28, 2017, 09:47:17 AM »
Just spotted this: http://tinyurl.com/y8tawzux
I remember someone did collect that color or something close.
I will not buy this one but would like to learn more about rare colors, and if I may help someone here to find "their phone" I would be happy.

I have even got a regular New York number :-) 646 570 1796

Here is Paul's encyclopedic color reference list:

Perhaps you can find charts showing "color swatches" on line but the value of such charts is seriously limited by the poor accuracy of color rendition by "uncalibrated" (not adjusted to conform to any uniform standard) video screens.

Yes the Aqua Blue is a good color, the bad part is that it changes to look like Turquoise with the sun.  It would be nice if they showed the inside to compare the color.   Also this looks to be an early one, with the back painted face plate. Also hard wired.

I had a set of 6 that I traded to the JKL be for  the fire.  I stop at the 1500's.
