My SC 1553

I bought this SC 1553 from a forum member recently. (The member may identify himself if you like, I didn't as permission to say.) It was just as removed from service, years ago. Not a lot of dates, 7/42 reciever, seems too early? I am researching the TCI library to help with it's age now.

I used the chemical polishing method on this one , as I do all my phones now. There was a lot of paint on the lower part of the case, I carefully used stripper to remove. This time I used a almost worn out Scotch Brite pad (see pics) followed by 1500 grit with Denatured alcohol in between and after. I mixed Novis 2 with DN to finish the polishing...Thanks for that tip, John!

Topped it off with a NOS finger wheel and number holder & it looks great! this is a cool wall phone!

It's "special" because it's shinny and it's mine!
