11-51 440EC3, my first multiline / keyset 300-series phone.

     I've been wanting one of these for a long while. Bought as part of a two-phone auction, the other being a NE 302. $31.775 ea., if split down the middle.

Best regards!

A Northern Electric 302, second one in my collection.

     It was the other half of the two-phone deal which brought me the 440EC3... so $31.76. Has a rural number plate, no RX or TX elements. Haven't been under the hood, to determine any other component dates, quite yet.

Best regards!

Another G-mount, just love these little darlin's! :D

     $39.99. Unfortunately, the wee little plastic number card ring disintegrated in transit. Oh well...

Best regards!

My 2nd buttset, a 1011(G?)... $10.00

     Now, this is more like a buttset, to me.... needs a replacement #6 fingerwheel, if anybody has one to spare; this one's like a Tilt-O-Whirl...works, though. I would also like to find the correct set of croc-clips that plug into this cord, as the switchboard jack isn't very helpful to me, at present.

Best regards!

You can straighten that finger wheel fairly easily. I have done it with worse looking ones. I have 2 small pieces of 2X4, about 4 inches each. Put finger wheel in between and hammer away till flat.

Thanks, Harry!

     Guess I'll give it a whack (literally)! ;) It's only aluminium, so it shouldn't be too awfully difficult, eh, wot? Otherwise, it was going to be relegated to my Telephony-Related Christmas Tree ornaments; fairly interesting use of these items.

Best regards!

Kellogg ITT 576, most dates from 6/63. Base shows R 63, elements 62. Detroit Police Dept.

     Got this cool phone from LarryInMichigan last June, but failed to get any pics posted. Looking at the 564's posted today fixed things, though. ;)

     I need one pushbutton for it, if anybody has one, please let me know, and thanks in advance!

Best regards!

Won a "Brass" G-mount phone earlier. Never seen one before.

     Guess I'll have to wait to see what I've gotten, when it gets here. Projected arrival date:Monday, 17MAR14. $79.00, 17 bids...

     Meanwhile, here's the auction photos:

17MAR14:

     Phone arrived today, and is just beautiful! 8) I don't know when/where it was brass-plated, but the plating looks quite old, as well as does the tag on the back. I haven't opened it up yet, to see what can be discerned.

Best regards!

BIN on a 7/39 302, making it the oldest 300-series in my collection. 8) It had been posted less than an hour, lucky me! ;) $75.00.

Sorry for the carppy auction pics; I will post better, once it arrives next week. Pretty excited about it! ;)

Best regards!
