I thought the title said "foamy collection", and was wondering if that's a new collecting interest...  ;D

That's nice!....My 357 dial phone has dates inside that match the day I was born...

LOL.... so much for typo's anyway, the phone will be here on Monday... maybe I'll put my 307C and a 357C on Ebay and see if anyone will bite.... selling them as a set might just do the trick....

Congrats Benny, I've come close but don't have a Birthday phone yet. Maybe that's why I have trouble passing up good deals on 302s

Got the phone yesterday, disassembled it and gave the shell , handset and other washable parts a nice warm bath.... the unit was pretty clean though it did have a layer of dust inside it.... still have to test it.... tried to use a toner on it with no results.... so I put away for the time being....
