Med Blue Mini 500
« on: November 13, 2017, 08:10:38 AM »
Thanks to a heads up from a member I bid on a Med Blue mini 500 yesterday. It went way over my max bid! Sold for $82.57! I was not going that high for a toy phone!

Nope, he didn't win it--it went over his max bid.

I saw that one, and figured it would go sky high. $82 may not be sky high to us, but it would be to someone a quarter the size of us... ;)

I did not win. No idea who did. To me anything over about $40.00 is too high for one of these but I did bid up to $56.00 on this one.

Just curious, why no "Operator" lettering ?

I just looked back at a couple of other mini 500 pictures and none have the lettering for Operator.
Maybe too much to emboss so small??
