Yup. I pulled a ITT clone of a AT&T 2500 series desk set phone from the
storage cabinet. You know, the usual made-to-last 50 years iconic
phone. It was a light brownish-beige after I picked it up cheap back in
the 1980s. It has never been used, much less seen the light of day.
Today, the beige has developed an ugly yellow cast--and it's uniform
over the entire phone. The material, as I seem to recall, is ABS (Cycolac).
Oddly, the WE-made same-color phones that I have and are out in the open
(and the same color) don't show this discoloration.
