Ivory and Moss Green Soft Plastic
« on: September 04, 2012, 04:46:14 PM »
Well I was able to get a couple more soft plastics this last week at what I thought were good deals.  Slowly but surely I will get them all  ;D

Picked up an Ivory 06/56 with all matching numbers throughout...except missing the receiver inside for $21
Then picked up a Moss Green 03/58 for $34  This one is also all matching numbers throughout

Haven't had a chance to clean them up yet but they are in great condition and shouldn't take too much to finish them off

Those are two nice ones. They're not the rarest colors by any means, but I agree you got a good deal compared to what others have brought.

If you wind a dowel in the green one's handset cord and then place it on a hot car dashboard for a day or so, it should make it look like the cord on the ivory one. Fat coils instead of skinny ones.

The coiled mounting cord on the ivory one, is it white? It's hard to tell. Coiled mounting cords are unusual on soft plastic phones, but they can be original. Look for the date on the strain relief.

Very nice!  What is the date stamp on the coiled line cord on the Ivory?

Quite nice!  And in what secret hiding hole are you finding these?
