Well, I installed the 2565HK-59 in my daughter's room, and it stayed there until I upgraded from 1A2 to a Samsung system a few years ago.

I have an equivalent number and assortment of blue ones, just in case you thought I was getting a little too in-touch with my feminine side.

You might want to connect with these folks. They have been around since the early 1970's. They have tons of connections:

Also, try the Telephone Tribute Web site. There are also plenty of links available on #9 on the Touch Tone dial at the head of their home page:

Sadly, it appears that the Bell System Memorial Site is gone. Now that was a good place to find collectible WECO stuff. Fortunately, Telephone Tribute has many of the same links available.

Yeah, Jeff I found that out later. It's just the link on the Telephone Tribute home page that doesn't work.

Ed, Thanks for the links. I know about those folks, as they are all members of the ATCA, as am I. (member #1783)

Collectors all know the value (or perceived inflated value) of these antiques. That's why I occasionally ask among the non-collectors, hoping to find someone who doesn't think they have the rarest telephone ever made.

I offer a fair price for things that I have no intention of selling, unlike some of the so-called collectors who are just in it for the $.
