 japanese odd pic cable
I need to find the color code for "Japanese Odd Pic Cable" Phone companies used it for a very short time in the 1950's and the color code is different than the industry standard.

Dear Brenda,

I don't really have a color code for this particular cable but I would point out that color code is a rather arbitrary thing in a cable. If you have access to both ends of the cable, you should be able to simply come up with your own color code that would only apply in your particular case.

You don't really have to worry about NEXT, FEXT and other high frequency electrical parameters simply because a 50s era phone cable is not going to support the high frequency signal anyways.
