Hahahahaha I've got about 41 more to show.... eventually I hope to get them all in the same room so I can take one big picture of at least most of them.

Oh and yes I actually DO know the approximate number of phones I have, although it's time for a re-count. LOL

Jonathan,

Are you sure you know the approximate # of phones you have? I bet your guess is low. About 10 years ago I was packing up to move. Most of my phones had been boxed up for a few months.  I decide to count the 20 or so newly acquired phones that were still scattered around the house. 20 or so turned out to be 73. 
Welcome to the forum,

Your beige set with leather and round feet is interesting. It shows how resourceful those phone companies were.

The beige one was made in 1956 and I don't know how many times it was refurbished. I do like it as a good "using" phone.
