I recently got this Red Northern Electric 302 with what looks like Western Electric plastics.

Base 3-55 (NE)
101A Coil 12-6-54 (NE)
Ringer 3-1-55 (NE)
5J Dial 52 (NE)
Handset 11-54 (WE)
Receiver element 48 (NE)
Transmitter element 50 (NE)
Case 3-17-55 (WE?)

Ebay Listing:
I paid $97 USD and $31 USD for shipping.

The feet look like replacements.  I think I will replace them with feet of of a parts 302.
And I will probably want to get some reproduction cords.


Great! find sir, seller must be more colorblind then me, LOL!
I'd say its Rose colored but, I am colorblind, LOL!
A couple of things look strange to me on this phone but, I'm not very familiar with Northern Electric so............
But, there's no denying its a great looking phone at a great price no matter what color it may be.
