The Bates List Finder Director model mechanical metal telephone directory shown here is a real blast from the past. Beige colored, and measuring 5 inches wide by 8 1/4 inches long, it is in good working order. There is an ivory colored plane-like design on the top. Some of the beige is worn off as you can see in the pictures.

The alphabetized cards for phone numbers are missing, but original and reproduced refills can be found online. The emergency numbers card is still there and in good condition. Three of the rubber pads on the bottom are gone, also. I have heard this one is from the 1970's. The bottom is impressed with BATES LIST FINDER, DIRECTOR (R) MODEL, MATCHING TELEPHONE COLORS, MADE IN JAPAN EXPRESSLY FOR, THE BATES MANUFACTURING CO., ORANGE, NEW JERSEY, U.S.A.
