What's funny is the 554 is also a Kellogg; I just think a lot of the bidders had their hearts set on the 500!

With the Blue Kellogg Banjo and the Blue WE 302 both going for a Grand, I guess they are they are both equals in being a scarce find. I had never seen a Blue Banjo and really liked the look. 1K for a telephone...WOW!!!....Doug

I wouldn't necessarily call a blue 302 rare, but more of an uncommon phone that commands a really, really high price. When was the last time you saw a blue 302? It was probably only a couple weeks ago, getting bids like there's no tomorrow.

That being said, I will probably never find one locally, expensive or not.

Christian...."RARE" is the must over used word in telephone collecting or any hobby for that matter.  I will say a Blue 302 is a tough find. Yes, you see one most every week, but usually over 1K, pending on condition.

The Blue Banjo phone I thought was more in the 500 set class, pardon the classification, and not the 302 series. I would not expect to see a Mushroomless (that is a word) Blue 55 500 set sell for $1K, maybe I am wrong. First time for everything  8)

1K for a phone is something I have a hard time understanding. Love my phones, but Janet would kill me. I think it takes the fun out of the chase when you just spend to get. Maybe its because I cannot spend to get  :'(   I do enjoy the chase....Doug
