North Galion with 5J
« on: October 04, 2019, 08:06:54 AM »
I saw this yesterday on eBay and I purchased it. I needed a 5J (possibly a 6D) for a project. In the past I have found that if a North has a 5J it might be a color set that is painted black. Pictures are horrible so it's $25 for a 5J and maybe a colored North.

Blue would be fantastic  8)  ....Doug

Not sure how pics could be so bad, but this beauty looks like it was never used. Bakelite just shines.  I got the 5J dial I needed and another beauty for my collection...Doug

Very nice phone, and you certainly can't complain about the price.

Thanks....it certainly was a deal, the 5J was what I was looking for. I was surprised how nice it was considering how really bad the two pics were. This was a win-win...Doug
