I think this one has been kicking around eBay for a few years now at that price.

It may be a bit overpriced.

The seller is not known to sell any of his stuff cheaply. (or even reasonably)

Far more expensive than my will to buy.  But it is a beauty, and I hope it will get a new home taking care of what may be a part of the telephone history.  Even when it is expensive, it is good for preservation. (And it makes my phones to be considered as more valuable than they really are)

If someone know anything about this version of ship telephone, please post it here.
