Two new NE phones
« on: July 16, 2018, 06:35:09 PM »
I have 2 new Northern Electric white phones to add to my collection:

1) A white NE500 with the Helvetica font dial faceplate (it does have “OPERATOR“, so I assume it was originally destined for the US market. $14.99 (+$14.88 shipping)
2) A white NE1702 Contessa phone with the split number card!!! It’s definitely one of the rarer finds in my white phone collection. It needs a little bleaching, but once done, it will look great! $99.00 (+$22.85 shopping).

A phone phanatic since I was less than 2 (thanks to Fisher Price); collector since a teenager; now able to afford to play!
Favorite Phone: Western Electric Trimline - it just feels right holding it up to my face!

They really look nice and should clean up well. I love the 10 button contessa sets.
