Went for $79 + $7.52 shipping. I'm not an expert on those phones but but didn't seem like a bad price. For me, I can think of other phone i'd rather spend my $90 on.

Yes that’s reasonable! A nicer colour might go a bit higher. These don’t come up very often but definitely more often than the Autovon set and Paul’s Western Union Phone.

Maybe Pourme snagged it?

Sparked a good discussion at least.

I bought one a couple of years ago in black for $109. Maybe too much, but it's an interesting phone. The early days of phones and computers still seem to amaze people, the days when 300 baud was positively screaming! How about a teletype on a 20ma loop!
