Yeah, I find usually when I write "ugly" or "horrible" in my listings I get a lot of interest...

Yes it is ugly, but it could be bought, and made beautiful as the aqua is always a stunning color when perfect.

This one's a bit more blue and can be yours for a BIN of $97.50 with FREE SHIPPING! What color would this be with a bit of 30 developer? Check out the edge of the dial bezel.

Looks like a nice phone, but too expensive, that 4 prong looks really nice on it.

Well, it looks like someone got a little hungry in the 12th picture, and the dial looks pretty scratched up. Other than that, it doesn't look too bad, other than the price...
