$727.66 :o
In '59, my parents and I moved. The house had a "mushroom" in it. My mother, who worked for Michigan Bell declared that it was the ugliest phone she had ever seen. Of course, I thought it was the greatest thing because of the light and switch.

What would a red or blue go for? This stuff  is better than gold!

The red mushroom next to my name was about $240 to the door a year ago.

If I ain't serisly mistook (as Amos & Andy used to say), I believe that makes McHeath this week's big winner.  Congratulations, McHeath!

No kidding McHeath. I'm glad I'm not a big time collector - there's no way I'd ever spend that much on a phone, especially not that one. Some of this stuff just blows my mind.
