Thanks again for your compliments. But it's not only Western Electric, the candlestick next to the chair is a 1930 Automatic Electric 21. And in my defense, I have at least two German phones too :)

Attached to the 389 A jack and 273 A plug I wanted to buy was this 1950 matching dates 302. Everything works fine and no damage, only light scratches. Just gave it a quick 10 minute polish with Wenol (was lazy tonight).

Not that long ago I received a gift from Jim/compubit by mail - a long wanted pink WE 500, 1959 with open center fingerwheel. It was just slightly dicolorized, bleaching was not very satisfying so I made my first attempt with sanding. Turned out piggy pink again, I'm very pleased. OK, it is not yet polished to the final luster but nobody around here except me (and probably all of you) will notice. And the transmitter cap is not yet sanded and still discolorized. This will be my new bedside telephone, thanks to the generous gift from Jim, thank you a lot. More pictures to follow.

We (my wife and I) had a few days off, and went to Berlin where Haf met us at the airport, and showed us lots of the City. I also visited him at home, and he is a perfectionist making the entire room looking in from the same period of time as the phones. I will let him selves publish pictures of his phones, but I am really impressed. We talked a lot about phones too, and about how to get the right old American dial tone, and payphone signals for his American phones.
Te picture shows Haf in his wheelchair, his assistant and me.

Haf:
Thank you for your great hospitality!

Glad to hear y‘all had a great time! I know I did on my trip to Berlin - saw parts of the city not visited by foreign tourists, and had a great time.
