My dream of a small cottage in the Cotwolds with a Spitfire near a canal will have to wait.

You know......

For $10 Million, one could buy a rather large telephone museum with lots of goodies; even with a central office built in. 

Doesn't e-bay charge a listing fee as a percentage of the opening bid price?  If so, this guy already has money to burn.  Maybe e-bay had a free listing special going on.  In any event, only the Gub'ment buys $10 Million boat anchors.

Good point, plenty of folks would think collecting old rotary phones is weird.  But then I went to a car show last night and it was the usual mix of old cars, muscle, stock, PUs, etc, and I'm sure plenty of folks think that is weird too, so to each their own.

But I'm willing to bet D/P that you don't think that something sitting around your house is worth 10 million.   :)

True eh.  But I meant a thingie sitting around that was made in a factory or by hand or such.
