The handset arrived and after a polish, here it is on the phone.

That was a quick delivery from the Netherlands to Georgia! Now the phone looks perfect!

Thank You!  It works nicely with my dialgizmo, too.

Pickings for older phones are mighty slim, but they can be found.  I found this yellow wall mount trimline touch tone and it sits on my old modular wall fixture.

A couple of days ago, I found this avocado unit with a fixed wall mount base with 1968 dates throughout, coupled by an earlier modular cord to what appears to be a newer handset.  The ends of the original wiring are still on the terminals.
