Was this a good deal?

I didn't win this, but it looks nice to my untrained eye. Is a 305 just a special set with a shut off switch for the ringer?

I could make this pink repair with denture pink acrylic. I don't  have any coloured 302's. Can you straighten out cloth cords with the freeze method? Anyone tried this? Thanks

If this was not damaged, it would go for at least five times the final bid. Color WE 305s are a tough find. Good luck on your repair and please show us the finished product....Kidphone

I didn't win it, but I could fix it for the guy. I thought it was a good price, crack and all.

My take is that it was an excellent price, crack and all.  302's were fairly plentiful in ivory, but the other colors were not as plentiful.  They always go for the big bucks.
