Welcome to the Rotary Phone Forum EricofonNL. Good to hear that you found some deals and were able to get them to Europe (presumably) successfully.

I missed this auction, I was on a cruise ship. Just like the Roger Conklin collection auction, I was on a different cruise ship then!

I do find myself wondering if any sales statistics are released on either of these auctions indicating the final selling prices of any of the lots. It would be interesting to look at pictures along with the selling price so we could see if we are missing some major deals on these large auctions.

Hello,

this is my first post here on the forum. As an Ericofon collector I also won one of the lots (292) from Paul-F on the auction in October. It was quite a challenge to bid in an overseas online auction and to get them here. But  finally they are a great asset to my collection.

And all 5 Ericofons in the lot were top quality!! Thanks.

Best regards

Paul

Aaah, yes that worked. So presumably the "unverified price" is mostly correct and was the final price before buyers premium, internet premium and shipping of course.

Lots of bargains but some WoW prices in there as well. Interesting.

Was that just a start at cleaning out the storage areas Paul or did that get you down close to where you want to be for now at least?

Yes, correct. The yellow and grey caugth my attention in this lot. In other (Ericofon) lots there were also interesting models but my budget was limited. 

And this is the story behind the catch...  ;)

I was able to view the entire auction with "unverified prices" without signing in here:

Thanks Harry...you must have bid on one of the auctions as I could not see any prices either.  I was shocked how inexpensive some of the phones or groups of phones went for. I know Paul put a lot of money and time into this collection. I saw it before in was fully organized and there was a HUGE amount of telephones. Paul is one of the good guys in our hobby....but you already knew that!....Doug
