Auction 299: WE 1952 Pekin Red 302 - Ended 11-17-17
« on: November 11, 2017, 11:40:45 AM »
New forum members are very welcome and encouraged to take a guess. After all, there are no wrong guesses, just one lucky one. No one knows the winning bid on any auction until it ends. However, it is important to get your guess in before someone else grabs your guess.

Listed about 18 hours ago in a 7 day auction with no reserve and starting at just $0.99 is a very nice Pekin Red 302. Noteably one of the nicest I've seen in quite some time on eBay, if ever. The seller provided great exterior and interior images. Since being listed, the phone received 6 bids from 4 buyers increasing the price to $157.50 and it has 17 watchers. It will go higher but the question is, once again, who best knows what this phone will sell for when the auction ends?

NOTE:  We will use a $5 gap rule between guesses to prevent crowding. As such, keep your guess at least $5 away from prior guesses for this contest. All guesses, original and a single allowed revised guess if needed, must be submitted at least 24 hours before the auction ends.

The seller listed it as a "Pekin Red 1952 Western Electric 302 Rotary Telephone Amazing Condition" with the item condition as "Used" and " No chips or cracks in housing, slight stress crack in handset covers. Original cords " and with the auction listing description saying "Beautiful Pekin Red 1952 Western Electric Rotary Telephone.  Phone is stamped inside and out with 1952 date.  No chips or cracks in the phone housing. There are a couple slight stress cracks in the handset covers, see pictures. This is normal for these old thermoplastic phones.  Original straight red cords.  Phone is in amazing condition overall.  Dial moves freely back and forth as it should.  Ready to be put to work or just put on display as the beauty it is.."
