Kenny, some time when you get a minute, could you post a photo of that wall phone with the handset removed, please?  I'm am trying to see if it is the model with the curvature at the bottom and the big Stromberg Carlson embossed insignia about where the handset mouthpiece rests. 

I have a few of these.  They seem to be difficult to find.  I have Ivory, Yellow, Dark Gray, Rose Beige, Green and Black.  My Green one has the G3 type handset which is wider than the others.  I really like this model.  The ringers on them are very loud, like the desk phone versions.

What I mean is they curve at the bottom rather than being more squared off, like a 554.  I'll attach a photo of one.

Notice how the housing is square at the top, but curved at the bottom, or rounded.

Very nice, Kenny.  That was a nice gift from Stub.  I don't recall seeing one in White (since I've been looking).  Of course anything in white is difficult to find that isn't discolored.

It was very discolored! I sanded and retro-brited most of it out, but there is still some there.
