If the shell was replaced in later years, then technically it wasn't "notched", it was just refurbished and updated, so the base could still be returned to original with an age-related (and soft plastic presumably) shell & handset... :)

It's like my black 500DM, it has a base from '57, but was updated in '75 with new ABS plastics, so, it's just a refurb rather than having been bitten by the notching tool... :)
