Rose Beige 500
« on: March 03, 2013, 10:36:27 PM »
Well I got this group of 4 phones tonight on Ebay and really just one wanted of them, so the rest I will resale.  I know that the rose will need a cord but at least I have the phone now.  http://tinyurl.com/c5jo7aq

I was watching that auction.  I am glad to see that someone here got it for a good price.  If I were the winner, i would probably ask the seller to toss the Radio Shack phone.  It's worth about $1.

I dunno, it may be worthless to a collector, but it's a handy spare for when someone you know needs a phone cos their cheap dollar store or pound shop phone breaks... :D

This one I will be keeping AE40FAN.  Gave Dan the gray one so he could complete his collection but think I'll detail this one out and add it to my growing collection.

Congrats!!! You are on your way. Good eye catching that diamond in the rough.

Looks like you will have to move the slate wire off the ground to the green to get it to ring.

I saw that on ebay, had it on my watch list but I wasn't in the mood to buy tons of matching parts.. Though I still should have tried to win for a long time prodject.

GOOD LUCK!
