Certainly is pricey!

It says in the listing that it cost $400 back in the day. That's $1,692.33 in today's money.

That is a very unrealistic price on a phone not even created by Stronmerg Carlson. The way the screws are stuck in the holes for the ringer is not very professional in my opinion. That base unit is huge!!

The good news is that by 1986 both the price and size of a cordless phone came down dramatically!
