Someone Wanted this Badly! --WE 713B
« on: May 07, 2015, 11:06:26 AM »
I read somewhere that these sets are pretty rare, because of the 2-line switch and exclusion plunger. Well, I saw the listing for $74 BiN, and by the time I clicked on it, it was gone! :o

I have one of these from 1960 (711B), except that it has something of a toggle switch connected to the chassis instead of a knob. I also believe it was never used. (guy I bought it from says he still has the original box!) Would that be any rarer than this?
