Auction 14 - DeVeau Candlestick Intercom
« on: December 05, 2008, 01:14:16 AM »
Welcome to the next auction!  This time around we have a rather ancient looking DeVeau intercom.  We're joining the auction in the middle, so the price so far is fairly high.  I have a feeling this is going to go much higher, so I think it makes for a perfect auction candidate.

Where will it stop?  Let us know before the auction's final day, and you may be the contest winner!

I'll bid $1400.86.  I wish I had a phone that had "Maid" "Butler" and "Pantry" buttons on it.  Oh wait, I would need a maid, butler and pantry first!

Back in my school days I had an instructor that allowed us to use one WAG while taking an exam for which no points would be deducted for a wrong answer.  It means Wild-A--ed Guess.........

Since I have no clue as to the value of this telephone or its originality, my WAG is

$2,147

Congratulations mienaichizu for your winning guess.  I didn't even try on this one, just didn't know anything about it.

Excellent guess, mienaichizu!  And another surprising result. He had a similar phone that was around $1500 for most of the week.

You mean we don't actually get the phone?!?!?   No wonder I've been waiting in vain by the mailbox!

McHeath;
They sent it to me by mistake, and I'm keeping it.
Tough luck again my friend...
