Original Paint Connecticut Manual Toaster Phone
« on: January 27, 2019, 11:08:08 AM »
I am a big fan of the Toaster phone. Also a big fan of manual sets. Usually when you find these they are beat with poor paint and a few dings in the metal. I saw this on eBay and hoped it had the potential I saw as the pics looked good. Seller took a $25 offer plus $12.65 and it sure did live up to the potential. Paint is next to perfect. Great Handset Cord. It was a working phone but the line cord was held together by schreads and was just falling apart. I will have to replace it. Very happy to finally find one in great shape....Doug

it's a beauty for sure. But, how is the toast? I am always looking for a better toaster.

Yea, I have to agree that's a very cool phone.
And I can see why they call them toaster phones. I saw one in a yard sale many years ago, but I didn't buy it because I really wasn't excited about the shape, and the price had a lot to do with it too.
