"It is in excellent condition with no chips or cracks in the body or receiver hand set."

Yah right!



If you are looking for a box and just a box for a WE 554 telephone there is one on eBay for $25 and the shipping is free.  I mention it because paying that much for a empty cardboard box just seems absurd to me. ( dead link 02-19-21 )

If you can't get the link to work, just log on to eBay and search for a vintage 1957 Western Electric Collectible empty box for Model 554 wall telephone.  I don't care what the message says about it being taken down.  It is there and has two weeks to go as I am writing this.

<edit> I fixed the link. It was one of those HUGE ebaY links that is 4 rows long but part of it didnt copy over. All that is ever needed on any ebay link is the 12 digit item number after the to make it work. Just chop the rest out and toss it! Terry <end of edit>


I hope there's a phone attached to this, LOL!
Ya think he'd take $50 for it?

Increasingly, the younger set thinks that anything more than a year old is an "antique".
