The BSP C30.011 in reply #8 is dated December, 1953. It is somewhat unclear, but if the sets "are furnished" with black cords, then to me that sounds like you could order the two-tone set and did not have to assemble it in the field.

In  April, 1955 however, at least in Pacific Telephone area, the two-tone 500s were not stocked, according to the Appendix in reply #10.

'"The field made sets were described as standard non stock (Reply 10 3.03)

This paragraph is talking about special colors, not two-tone sets. Note that the customer had to provide a "sample" (of their wall paper, paint color, or whatever.)
