Interesting Rotary Trimline
« on: November 19, 2010, 09:33:59 PM »
I recently received a couple of phones from a customer for repair and one of them is quite interesting. A Western Electric Rotary Trimline in Orange! I was not aware WE made them in this color and a quick search at Pauls site does not list it.

WE made a burnt orange color and a rust color on trimlines.Yours looks like the burnt orange color. The rust is only a shade or 2 different.
