Either the seller put the decimal point in the wrong place or my collection is now worth enough to retire large.

Being a "listed until it sells" auction, I suspect the seller did not error in placement and as such will own this phone for many years . . .  Seller could have at least offered free shipping to sweeten the deal.

I don't think there is much of the original 1955 phone left.  This one is modular, plus I think it has round feet.  Seller never shows the bottom of the phone, so I don't even know if it is really 1955 or not.  It could be 1975 for all I know!

I would gladly pay $10.00 for this set.

No, they relished several times at $175 and then the listing ended because "the item is no longer available" so they must have got an offer they couldn't refuse....Jims offer of $10 no doubt.
