A beautiful set from Dan!!
« on: January 26, 2011, 11:02:16 PM »
This came in this evening. It is all matching dates 12-59 the cord is dated 60 but I think its the origonal cord. It has a crack beside the dial. I love this color.

The color looks real nice on that phone, Kenny.  Too bad about the crack.  Perhaps you can glue it from the inside to help keep it from cracking further.

Looks as though it has been sitting on one of those acid laced caustic handset cords for awhile. I wonder if handset cords were being made in China long before we knew about it?!

Nice looking phone Kenny...

Lucky you Kenny.  12-59, month and year my dad was born!

I'm glad you like it Kenny ;D, I know it is the original cord, at least the seller said it was.

Kenny great phone with a nice color.  Looks like you are amassing quite a collection of 1959 phones.  Did I mention before I was born in 1959?  (hint hint).   ;D  Joel
