Here's my 'Merry Christmas' picture contribution!

In case anyone's wondering, the Green is from '55 and the Red is from '56. What great years for Christmas time!

Yes it is an early soft plastic AE80 dated October 1959. From not very much earlier than this AE started dating their phones. Smells like cheese....

Unfortunately there are no dates on the Jade Green 880 Touch Call Speakerphone but its base label is missing that likely would have had the dates on it. Probably 1970 or early 70's. The 880's are one of those phones that are quite a bit more rare in Touch Call than Rotary. Like the 3 slot payphones.

Your early 500 Christmas display looks great as well Christian!

Nice pics, guys!

Wish I were home to enjoy the phones, but am with the family for Christmas.

Hope everyone has a Merry Christmas and gets to enjoy some down time from work.

Merry Christmas!

Yes, I tried to minimize that situation but that was about the best I could do. At least I am dressed.....
