I have had several of these and still have one. They had to have been a late or transitional model.

See Singing Wires April 2011, page 4.  Or could it be a 34A3B?  There is still some speculation regarding the set's pedigree, so any additional info is welcome.

            The 34 A3B used the 41 style handset and the base molding was changed to accommodate said handset and no carrying hole in the back.  AE Catalog 4055 C pg. 16    stub

Doug:
It isn't yours?! I don't know who that is that bought it for $76.
darn...don't know how I missed this one...

Dave F:
I knew the exact thread I was going to before I clicked on the link you posted above, another heart breaker. Still have a significantly better 34 to trade for it!

Terry...I couldn't get past the damage. I was tempted in in thinking I could repair it, but it is a tad above my creative ability...Doug

Yeah,  I saw this auction.  I too could not get past the damage.  I'm being very patient on waiting for the right AE34 to come along as I don't want to spend too much as I have done with other phones in the past.
