WE Butterscotch 202 Dated 3 30
« on: September 22, 2019, 12:58:47 PM »
I won this phone from fellow member Jason, Soundsystems on eBay

This is dated 3 30 , third quarter 1930. Eighty nine years old. Really nice paint job, I installed a 5J with a brass fingerwheel. 

I love the color of the phone and the paint job is great. I bought this for the 9 line bullet E1 as I was going to strip it as it looks perfect. I decided to keep it as as...at least for now  8)   ...Doug

I wonder about the paint. The ivory 202 I saw had a bottom cover with matching felt and all cloth ivory cords

Robby...I also have an Ivory with a Ivory suede base. This is a deeper butterscotch. I do not think it was Ivory.  Is is done well, no idea if it was done by Bell or a collector.

I bought for the handset to strip, but it is a keeper as is..Doug

That reminds me of an ivory set I got once that was nicotine stained. I have not seen a butterscotch before.
But it looks like a nice set to keep for sure.
