In the previous post I mentioned the different models. In the Sahara color I have the 3 models together. In these pictures you can see the differences.
The earliest model (< 1961), is the tallest phone with its 23 cm. The other 2 are about 2 cm smaller.
The next difference you can see is the ear-piece. In the left picture it is shown that the angle changed after redesigning the original phone to a smaller type. This was the reason to reshape the ear-piece and make the angle close to its original value in the right picture.
These are the differences that you can see on the shell from the outside. There are other differences if you dive deeper in the phones.
Well, the collection is slowly growing. At this moment I have 20 different phones and number 21 and 22 are on their way. In the Netherlands I found the Taj Mahal (new case with new ear-piece) and in the US I just bought the Petal Pink (new case with old ear-piece, as I already have the new ear-piece in this color).
The Taj Mahal was not in too good shape but it was a bargain. This one probably needs a rough sanding job. I have done that before and the result is sometimes surprisingly good. There is also a crack that needs to be worked on, so let’s see what comes out.
The picture on the left are all cases with the new ear-piece. The picture on the right shows the old cases, which I only have 2, and new cases with the old ear-piece. It is getting kinda complex now 😉
