Auction house is in New Hampshire so anyone local can attend in person.

Took me a bit of searching but finally found the items up for sale:

I see what you mean John...I missed your link to the actual items and clicked on the auction link from where I went around and around in circles trying to find a telephone...any telephone...,where are the telephones!

Then I found your link at the top of your post.

I ended up buying a few phones from this auction.  Wanted to buy some more, but the auction went to fast.  The last item I actually didn't even want, I was bidding on the item before this one, and the bidding ended and went to the next item right when I hit the bid button.  I'm trying to get out of buying this one, but I'm probably stuck.  20al + ringer $40, 50al $65, 584 $20, payphone $180, swedish american $100.

The payphone description says it is a Phoneco telephone, so I'm anxiously waiting to see how authentic it is.

shipping is always a little expensive from them.  however, they pack well - oversized boxes filled with bubble wrap.
