Awesome Mid Century Aqua Blue Rotary phone manufactured by Western Electric in Sept 1962. It's a model C/D 500. Embossed on the handset is Bell System Property Not For Sale Western Electric.
It's in great working condition--rings & adjusts volume, receives & calls out, the dial spins smoothly. The color is uniform all over except for the ear and mouthpiece are slightly brighter than the rest of the phone, the feet on the bottom are still in good condition, and the cord is not tangled or twisted . There a couple of superficial scuffs, and the handset has a crack near the earpiece. Includes the original blue wall cord with 4 prong mod plug(older style). An adapter can be purchased to adapt the four prong to a regular RJ11 jack, or the phone can be easily rewired. I can send instructions on how to do so with the phone.
