Quote from: Payphone installer on February 04, 2018, 08:09:38 PMI have reached the point in collecting telephones and signs where I never buy them based on return. I buy a TV I know I will never get a return on my money. I buy a couch I know I will never get a return on my money. I buy gold I will get a return on my money. It is nice to get a return on a old phone or sign at some point in the future but I think unlikely. I have found the best return on my telephone purchases is buying the cheap stuff like a pile of subsets. Or a gaylord of handsets then use the dollars to buy the rare stuff. I sell telephone parts and pieces on eBay and use the money to buy over priced good stuff. In the end you get to buy what you want for free. The trick is to also buy what you don't like. The trick is also to buy piles or collections and then piece it out. Collecting to get a return on your money buy collecting only what you want is highly unlikely to work out.
