Red North Thermoplastic Big Bucks
« on: April 03, 2016, 05:40:36 PM »
My friend Christian pointed this out to me a week ago. I patiently waited and had the high bid until the very end. Even without the handset it went for over $500. I had a Red WE Handset and cord that I was hopping it matched. Great phone....thanks Christian....Doug

I saw that but figured that I didn't have a chance.

Larry....as it turned out, neither did I. I do think my WE handset would have been a perfect match. Oh well........Doug

thanks Christain....it had only 12 watchers when I bid...then I upped it and felt really confident. I was shocked when I checked purchased history and it wasn't there. REALLY shocked at $500...but then again when is the last time you see one?  I have never seen one. I have three North colors but not the KING!!!...again...thank you...Doug

I missed out on the Red North, but I recently found a copper metal North as a consolation prize. I just love the North Electric "fat 302s". Such a cool looking phone...Doug

Hey, a Copper Galion seems more up your alley even than the Red! Nice find!
