 Old Color code
We have an old telephone cable (200 pair) that
has a different color code than what is in use today.
One wire in each pair has a solid color, while the other has a stripe of the same color.
These pairs are wrapped in paper.We have 4 binders of 50 pairs
Each binder has half the wires with the same solid color.
The four colrs seem to be: Purple,green,blue and...black?.
Do you know how to read this code?
