OK... here we go again. I am relisting this item because I previously had it listed as a Green phone and I was informed and discovered that this phone is in fact gray:
Up for auction is a Old Vintage Rotary phone. It is a desk phone. I am told it is Oxford Gray in color. It looks greenish but it is VERY dirty. I took a picture of the inside of the earpiece so you can see that it is gray. Was given this phone as a gag gift by someone who pulled it out of an old farm house basement. It is made by Bell System Western Electric. Model G-3. It has a new style connector hooked up to it. I plugged it in and was able to hear a dial tone. Check out the pictures. What you see pictured is what you get. It needs a good cleaning.... a real good cleaning. It has some scuff marks on it. It has a sticker on it with the police and fire emergency numbers on it. I did not peel this off because I figured that a collector would know the best way to remove it. No cracks in the case or handset. There is a very small chip in the back. I took a picture of it for you. The wire is intact and not frayed or bent. Whatever is in the center of the dial rotary seems to be missing but it spins freely without problems. I don't know much about these things but I will do my best to answer any questions you may have. Feel free to email on me. Shipping will be $13
