Four feet pads on the bottom are very nice
Graphics and paint are in very good condition with below normal blemishes for age and use. The ear piece does show a little more wear than the rest of the phone, but it does not distract from the phone at all.
Note four prong hookup box:
I removed the wires from the box and hooked the cord to a phone jack. The old phone worked great!
FYI: I attached the red and yellow wires on the cord to the red on the jack to get the ringer to work. Of course, also attach green to green. I only mention this because if you attach color to color the ringer doesn't work.
