i am going to add photo of my 500s one at a time. i have posted about this phone before, but this phone was supposed to have been on the andy griffiths show, it is pictured below with the coa, however i still doubt its authenticity.

I like the extra long cord on the Black Phone.

from now on when i post photos of my phones out of my collection, i will post them in this topic instead of several differnet ones.

Do you want me to Merge your 554 and 302 topics on this board into this topic SouthernPhoneMan? When topics are merged they do go in date order so that is how the new topic would look but you can still edit any of your posts and pictures afterwards.

The trimline looks like Nortel's CafeAuLait color. I don't know if WECo had that color as well though.

I believe the Slenderet is Harvest Gold, not café au lait. ITT and SC changed from yellow to harvest gold, dark red to bright red, and maybe some others.

AE has a Harvest Gold in Stylelines but their version of this color would be called Desert Sand. Geezz, no coordination between competitors at all....

MORE LATER.
