Now under all that is a phone that could be saved, granted they only glued things to the surface without poking holes in anything. But the price! Good lord  :o

More of a Frankenphone than an ugly phone, but this AE handset on a 302 looks pretty weird

The brown Rock Bell Phones are the most valuable.  This is because the brown rock from which such phones were carved was extremely hard and most difficult to carve.
