Doug;
I called and left a message, he's an older gentleman, lives close by me. I told him I would like to set up an appointment to see what he has.

Look thru the bin or buy them all. I discovered I had a white 5302 while I was loading the "junk" in my truck

Doug;
The guy was a former phone co employee, and his prices were a little higher than I had hoped. I still managed to get two phones and a promise to hold 2 more for me until the middle of next month.
I paid $115.00 for the two phones below.

Larry;
Yes I got a real nice 1960 Turquoise Princess, and a 10 button 1500D.
Both work and very little cleanup to make them look real nice.
Thanks you.

Dan, I think you did real well getting both of those phones for $115.  A fair price if they're in decent shape.  Looks like you need a 685 subset cover too...I've been on the lookout for one for a while.  I got an Imperial similar to yours with a broken subset cover.

Dennis;
They are both in very clean condition. No major corrosion or blemishes except the handset on the Imperial. The gold is very nice with just a coating of dust. I plan to strip them and clean them in the coming weeks. He had two of them, but the other was in less desirable condition, but it's handset was better. If i decide to get the other stuff, I'll exchange the handsets. He had a star WE candlestick mouthpiece I could have used but Didn't buy. I wish now I would have.
