This is an un-faded green colour. I have have fully restored this telephone and fitted an electronic microphone and a grey plastic 2.5 meter line in cord with a UK telephone plug socket. This model has an internal buzzer unlike the UK GPO models. This is a rare collectors telephone and they don't turn up very often. An award winning deign Icon and not a modern copy. This will dial out perfectly on a BT telephone line and most other systems but can only be sure of BT.
