Kleenax;
Are you sure they were Banjo phones, most people are fortunate to find one, let alone an entire box full.

Heh; yes, Obiwan, I am sure that they are indeed Kellogg DK-500s. How many would you like?  Unfortunately, not all of them have the desirable "gumdrop" bakelite handset. I used to have a few of them in color too, but alas, those too are gone to finance my casting projects. Photos attached. Had an Ivory too, but I can't find the photo of it right now. Also photos of my North 541s that I think are even more cool looking than the Kelloggs!

I have 3 banjos all in black but agree that the North 541s are my favorite of the 2.  Someday I'll find some color ones of those as well.

Do you have plans of replicating those models ?

No, sorry I don't.

Just too expensive of an undertaking for what it would bring. I kind of like to at least break even, and make enough to eat ;-)

Ray;
Just curious do you make your own molds or have them made ?
