Now the blue 302 is up to $769.89 with a little over 3 days left.  Could this one sell for over $1,000?

Stop it, David, those Kelloggs are making me drool! :o

That Banjo is really beautiful! My favorite color on a really beautiful phone up that you don't see everyday, and you don't see any in that color!

Yes, it is, regardless of the condition of the handset cord.

Same black rubber dyed blue coiled handset cords that me early AE 80 in dark blue has on it. And I have one dyed green on a very early Jade Green AE 80 as well. And both are cracking away in pieces like on the banjo phone as well.

The Blue Kellogg's are sold.
The 554 sold for a reasonable $250.38.
The 500 was at a reasonable $207.50 until 2 last minute snipes took it all the way to $1,000.00!

WOW :o
