Upgraded my AE40
« on: July 18, 2018, 07:32:28 AM »

I learned when I hesitate I loose out. Last night I didn't hesitate. This AE40 was offered for $35.00 so I ordered it to replace my current one. Someone has performed a restoration that is much better than mine.

There is a lot of factory notation inside the phone. I haven't noticed this much notation before. Is this unusual?

I would like to hear the comments of our AE specialists on this piece.

Also I will have a AE40 for sale soon!

Checking the sellers feedback all he sells is phone stuff. All nicely restored. I wonder if he is a member? Anyone?

Phoneco did this one They used AE dials off type 80s and 80E sets and modified them. They put Bell stickers on non Bell sets and painted clear fingerwheels black .This might be a Phillips or AE Canada also

I just happened to think...Did they painted the case? It looks so much better than mine...almost too good?
