All good prices, I have a handset for the leich, and I could use a contempra. The 500 and trimline were both  cheap enough I would of bought them. Currently I am not chasing phones but I still buy them if I find ones I like. This Spring I bought a modular WE 2500 clear w/damaged housing for $1.00. It was @ a fundraiser yard sale 1 block from my house.

Clear 2500 just sold for $598. It's mostly all WE, including the housing. The handset shell apparently has no logo, so it may be ITT. says Bell System Property, Not for Sale.

If you look closely, I think you can see the not for sale/bell system on the handset.
