Burled Walnut Northern Electric No. 2 Wall Set
« on: July 03, 2019, 11:36:39 AM »
I spotted this ebay listing for a Northern Electric No. 2 in burled walnut with a BIN price of $195.00 Canadian @ approximately $148.64 US
I put it in my watch list, figuring someone else would grab it. Checking back a few hours later, it was still listed so I purchased it - $163.85 US total cost with shipping - ebay listing https://tinyurl.com/yyaes9sv
It finally arrived, packed in a nice strong box, but only wrapped in some brown packing paper - fortunately it was not damaged.
All dated 8-48 except the straight black rubber handset cord which is not marked, a NE dial & F1 type handset - it should polish up nicely.

Good for you.    Nice find.     Yes, the walnut sets polish up beautifully.  Here's an example.     Click / double click to enlarge.

I also have a nice Walnut #2 with hard to find BNF handset. They are a bitch to photograph!

This is one of my favorite phones.....Doug
