Hi Cindy,

Actually somewhat helpful ;) We can probably rule out that they are Berry 
test sets ... those usually came in blue ... there were a few other third 
party vendors of trunk and station test sets ... names eluding me ... in 
addition to Western Electric itself. If the units are a "battleship gray" 
sort of color, that could suggest (though not guarantee) WECo manufacture.

Given a bit more identifying information or a picture, I'd be happy to 
pass this along to a few phone collector lists that I'm on ... depending 
on what it is and what it costs, there's a chance some people there could 
be interested.
