New and not so new forum members are very welcome and encouraged to take a guess. There are no wrong guesses, just one lucky guess. No one knows the winning bid on any auction until it ends. However, it is important to get your guess in before someone else grabs your guess.

New guesses must be at least $15 away from any prior guess.

Everyone is entitled to one (1) guess revision as long as it is posted in a reply at least 24 hours prior to the eBay auction ending.

Seller Description:  "Constructed by S. H. Couch & Company this antique, early 20th century Telephone has 10 buttons so you could connect to other offices in a large company. The heavy,  nickel over brass base measures 6 in diameter and the overall height is 12. All the electrical mechanics in the base, the receiver and the mouthpiece are original as are the cloth covered cable, which are connected to the oak junction box. Aside for some wear to the nickel and some fraying to the outside cloth covering on the cable this Couch Intercom Telephone is complete and in very good, unrestored condition."

This is started as a "special rules" no winner contest, the best guesser will not be included in the CRPF Auction Contest Hall of Fame or be counted in the CRPF Contest Standings as a win. This one is just for fun, the best guesser will take a place in the Special Auction Contest Standings.
