It is a teleconcepts phone from the '70's. Paul F. may have it listed on his site.

Thanks. Are they rare or valuable?

They are kinda cool. There are several collectors who collect them. I used to chase some of the teleconcepts with clear parts.

They were made in limited #'s, and out of real phone parts.

My guess is that they don't have a high resale at phone shows.
 You might contact Paul F. and ask his opinion on value.
 I think the starting price is reasonable enough.
If you like it you should bid on it.

There is a website for these phones that I stumbled across the other night. I'll see if I can find a link. There were many styles of these made, I especially like the ones with the lucite cube bodies.

They were made with real phone components except for one vital area.
The hookswitch was made from plastic and it is the first thing that will break on their phones.

I whole heartily agree with DougPav on this point.

That phone is great Dan, I  can't wait to see what it goes for. I would clear off a spot on the desk for it to say the least  :)
