As said before in a post or somewhere else, 2017 was an extremely successful year when it comes to collecting. Not about the quantity but all about quality.
Only 7 phones were added, but what kind of phones… Royal Dubonnet, Dusty Rose, Orange Metallic, Chartreuse, Green Metallic, Nordic Blue and Riviera.
Actually the Chartreuse, the last buy on December 29th, came with some nasty damage on the lower back. The rest of the shell was in very good to mint shape. Seen the price of the phone ($25) it was worth buying it anyway and take the chance. Didn’t have this color at all until now.
The result is quite okay and I am happy with it. Some additional microscopic work still can be done on the right side. Need to experiment on another shell first. On the left side the crack is hardly visible anymore.
