Two different phones.

302 with a sani clean and a party line dial plate. I asked if the Forum thought it was a stick on. I do. No lottery ticket needed as I know this is not original. I still played the Lottery.  8)

Candlestick with 2AE Dial plate and matching dial card. First opinion, not Bell. Second opinion,  ghosting and repainted. Third opinion, it is real.

Is it still a “zero chance” that this is original?  Meaning dial, dial plate, finger stop with original dial card original.

I am not an expert and do not claim to be. To the less than expert collector, me; I am just curious what the experts think. It looks real to me. I have been fooled before and will be again. Life in 40 years of collecting telephones.

Did this beat the zero odds?....Doug

My zero change comment referred to the original post.

The second post, the candlestick, looks like an original number plate but there is something wrong with the text. Perhaps it has been refinished.
