Quote from: McHeath on March 25, 2016, 01:11:37 PMThe phones in that guys "collection" look like mostly stuff from a then current Bell Phone Stores stock. Even the candlesticks look like stuff made in the late 70's to early 80's. Am I off base here?
Quote from: WEBellSystemChristian on March 25, 2016, 04:55:12 PMI would guess the real collector collected phones from the turn of the century to the '20s; phones that would have been trashed by Bell, and considered collectible to some extent at the time.The exaggerated picture shows brand new phones, just to show the new line.
