My birthday, or at least birth-month, telephone seems to have turned up.  http://tinyurl.com/43kxxp3  I do not intend to bid for it.

Looks like it's been "modularized".  At least the handset cord looks like a modular cord.

You can tell it came through the refurb shop by the paint on the bottom too. I think you need to wait on a better phone to come along. Hopefully it will be cheaper too. The only parts likely to date from 5-57 on this phone are the chassis items.

Security note:   Your legal name plus your birth date, are all an identity thief needs in order to make your life miserable for years.  They find the info by using keyword searches for "birthday" and similar terms.  Be aware and be careful!

Probably a good point GG. So now that we know that Stephen is the "youngster" out of him and I, we can go back and edit out the actual day.
