Just listed.  Maybe a contest candidate?

Could be, but it has a reserve. I tend to stay away from reserve auctions unless it's a unique piece. I thought that two piece paystation should have sold for less than $500 but the reserve was somewhere north of that and it did not sell. I am not familiar with this seller and the description reads like a cut and paste generic historical account of the 302.

I've put up a one day poll on this topic. I'll do what the members want. Contest or no contest?

I agree John.  I saw this earlier.  The seller gives a history lesson but doesn't say much about THAT phone.

As much fun as it would be to have this in an Auction Contest, I would say we shouldn't, unless we had a ballpark figure of what the reserve might be.
