    Wow.....

    Now that brings back some serious memories. Looking at that picture, I can feel those plastic buttons and remember the shape of that thing in my hand when I was a kid.

    Very cool.

    Here is a Trimline I picked up a couple months ago for $2.00. It is listed as a 20th century masterpiece design by MOMA (Museum of Modern Art in NYC). I really love it. It's my main phone. Lighted dial and all.

    Enjoy your Gs!

    That phone is, no doubt, the ..... Looks like you're missing the clear plastic cover that goes over that cutout on the base, that covers your name&number listing. We had a few of those, and, you know the At&T on the wall in Napoleon Dynamite's house? It's pretty huge, with like a 30 foot cord. That was a fixture in our house for several years. I tripped when I saw that in ND.

    I used to have one of those sleek black Braun calculators (may have been early eighties, though).
    Some time in the earlier seventies, a ship captain asked me to procure a calculator, so I bought him a "Triumph" was the brand I believe, at a whopping US$ 250-
    In those days it cost a lot to calculate by fingertouch!

    Hello B_anderson;

    Does an abacus count? Although, I used to have an old Sharp calculator that came in those leather wallets. You know, they kind that had a sleve insert for a paper or two. Don't know where it is now though.
    It would have at least been early 80's if not late 70's.

    Love the red display. I had a couple of watches in the 70s with the same red digits. Flashback!
    Go Dortmund!
